Elm Wood Primary School

Welcome to Year 1 Class 3

Welcome to Year 1- Class 3 (some important information for the year).

The team in class 3 is:

Class teacher- Miss Childs

Class teaching assistants- Mr Berry, Mrs Hartley, Miss Hartley and Miss Mair

 

In Year 1 our final topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers.

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching  whiskers….What’s your favourite animal? 

One that meows?  One that barks?  Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?

From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. 

Do you know how to look after a rabbit?  A cat?  Or even a snake?

Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin…Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail?  Can you make a food chain to show who eats who?  Who is a herbivore and who is a carnivore?

When a gaggle of mysterious pets arrive at the local pet shop, it’s up to you to take care of them.  Feed them, clean them up and      discover their daily needs.

After all that work, curl up and take a nap….a cat nap!
