Year 1 loved meeting the Meerkats from Pet Encounters. In English we have been reading Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. Being able to get up to close to the Meerkats helped Year 1 develop their understanding about the animals. In English we have explored writing in character as Sunny the Meerkat. We have also researched facts about Meerkats to create non-fiction fact files. It was a special day meeting the Meerkats Ben and Oscar.
