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.
