Here are some Photos from our seasons day at Rutland Water.

We learnt alot about Oakham.

We were really Lucky to have a visit this morning from Eve, Rebecca and spaniel Teddy this morning.

We learnt lots about the job of a vet including looking at bones, ticks, fleas and bandages.  We also dressed up as surgeons bandaged others and used a stethescope to listen to Teddy's heartbeat. It was a fantastic morning and we are very grateful to our visitors.

We have been having physical literacy lessons and this week our focus was ladder work and balancing!!

On Monday Morning we visited Oakham Library. We were the first class to visit the new library and it looked amazing!! We shared the new Julia Donaldson story about 5 ugly animals and then chose some library books of our own to bring back to school.

Our challenge is for everyone in our class to be a member of the library - so y2 have promised to take their families for a visit to sign up soon.

We have had a busy couple of days getting used to our new classroom.
