Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 team: Cherril Day (Teacher), Mary Graham (Teacher), Monica Bartley-Bond (Teacher), Mandy Greaves (TA) & Karen Marshall (HLTA).
This half term we have had a few visitors in and a visit to our local groomers.
As part of our enquiry the children in Year 1 wanted to know more about dogs.
We first visited Posh Paws to find out what they do and how to groom a dog.
We watched the dogs be cut, washed, dried and brushed. Best of all, we were able to stoke the dogs if we wanted too!
Then we welcomed Guide Dogs for the Blind. We had two very special visitors called Riley and Harrison. Riley was a guide dog puppy and Harrison was a guide dog for Sam. We learnt lots of interesting things about their job and how they are trained.
The children worked extremely hard on their challenge of making a pet carrier at home. The creations were fantastic, varied and very creative.
We were very lucky to have seven dogs from Pets as Therapy. They told us how they help children with reading through just listening and giving the children confidence, making them feel comfortable, especially if they are missing someone.
To end our enquiry we made a pet sock puppet, using a range of materials and skills.
We have worked extremely hard and had a fantastic and very full Spring Term!
Have fun making a colourful picture with Bing and Flop.
