WOW! What a week we have had.  On Monday, we went to the Tropical Butterfly House in Sheffield and had a fantastic time.  We were incredibly lucky with the weather and got to see a range of different animals.  For example: giant tortoises, lemurs, meerkats, wallabies, otters, tamarins macaws and butterflies.  In the butterfly house, we had a talk from one of the rangers all about the tropical environment and learnt about how different animals use a range of senses to help them survive.  Some children even held a giant cockroach! 

On Wednesday, some children went in to Nottingham to meet some of the Nottingham Panthers and had a go at ice-skating. The children who stayed in school took part in a number of Easter themed activities and special Spanish and Music sessions.  Today, we had our Easter service at St Helens Church and learnt all about this special time of year.  Next week, we have just three days in school before we break up for the holiday.
