The children were able to bring in a teddy or a bear that is special to them from home for the hook of our new topic, toys.
We all went to the hall together and sat in a big circle where we each talked about why our bear is special and what is was like. We also shared a delicious cupcake with our bears too.
The children used some super vocabulary to describe their bears, such as cuddly, colourful, squishy and soft. This will really help us with our future learning as we will be finding out all about the history of bears.

Our trip to Twycross Zoo
Year One had a wonderful day visiting Twycross Zoo as an ending to our topic about animals from around the world. We enjoyed seeing the gorillas sleeping and playing, giraffes eating the leaves and we were even lucky enough to spot a snow leopard too. The children impressed the zoo keepers with all of their knowledge about the animals and where they come from. Well done, Year 1!
Here are some photos from the day:
