     To begin our Paws, Claws and Whiskers topic we had a fantastic trip to

Knowsley Safari Park! 




           In our science lessons we have been learning about  different animal groups.


        Amphibians, mammals, reptiles, birds and fish.


        Can you decide which group each of the animals below belong to?




                Salamander      Owl 


    Snake         Panda  




              Angel fish   



We had a wonderful 'Tiger's Tea Party' to celebrate 

World Book Day



The Year One staff dressed up as the characters from the popular

children's story 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' by Judith Kerr .


We served biscuits, buns (and milk from a teapot) to re enact the story! 




   Before the TIGER arrived and tried to   

   help himself to all the food and drink!   






   To finish our topic we enjoyed a visit from an animal who has soft,    furry paws, sharp claws and long whiskers!


  We thought of and wrote questions to ask the pet owner so that we could find our more about the pet's likes, dislikes, health and eating and sleeping habits.



We found out the visitor was a mammal, a carnivore and also nocturnal.  What a wonderful way to end our topic!
