We talked about how at Christmas Time many dogs and puppies are given as gifts without thinking about what keeping them involves. I showed the children an article from the R.S.P.C.A which told of how hundreds of these animals end up without a home and in their care.
What is the R.S.P.C.A?
A discussion followed where children shared their understanding.
2 Little Puppies were left at the School Office
Our discussion the previous day was overheard by someone and they left their 2 puppies for us to look after.
This delivery left us with a problem to solve, how can we help these dogs?

CHINESE NEW YEAR – Reception , Year 1 & Year 2
For two consecutive afternoons, children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 have worked together to learn about Chinese New Year. They worked collaboratively to make a spectacular Chinese New Year dragon which you will find in the school hall. They drew their own colourful Chinese dragons using pastels. They also made folded paper dragons and lucky money bags. We sang a Chinese New Year song and listened to the story of the Chinese New Year. There was a race across the river and the Chinese calendar was formed by the order in which the animals got across the river. This year it is the Year of the Rat. KUNG HEI FAT CHOi! (which means ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese)
