God’s Eyes (2/10/17)

Y3 had fun making ‘god’s eyes this week.  We have been learning in RE about how different religions think about God.  We learned about a primitive form of star weaving, reminiscent of a dreamcatcher, Ojo de Dios, or God’s Eyes are still woven today by the Huichol Indians of Mexico. The idea is to use bright colors to serve as an eye to watch over others (especially babies) and to bring good luck.

Year One visit Dudley Zoo (27/03/17)

On Monday 27th March, Year One went on a school visit to Dudley Zoo. This visit linked with their topic Meerkat Madness.  The children left school promptly to arrive at the zoo.

On arrival, the children got to see camels, baboons, and Asiatic lions. As part of our experience, we were able to feed the meerkats and have a talk about meerkats by one of the staff members at the zoo. The children loved this experience and not only did they learn more facts about these animals, but they impressed the keeper too by how much they knew!

After this, the children had a close encounter with some of the smaller creatures at the zoo.  Children got the opportunity to stroke snakes and ferrets which was a wonderful experience – even the teachers got to do it too!!!

In awe!
