We have had a very special visitor in our class today!
The children have celebrated Roald Dahl day by reading Esio Trot (one of Mrs Hoyle’s favourite books). Esio Trot is about a man called Mr Hoppy who is in love with a tortoise loving lady. To win her heart, he swaps her tortoise several times convincing her that his magic word have made the tortoise grow. We are continuing this book tomorrow to see if Mr Hoppy’s plan works.
As a special surprise Mrs Parker and Poppy kindly brought their tortoise into class this morning. The children enjoyed learning about how to look after a tortoise and asked many questions. We have written easy to follow instructions for anyone wanting to keep a tortoise as a pet. This afternoon we have practised mixing different colours together to create a tortoise shell.
