Welcome to Briery Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Oseman and our
teaching assistant is Mrs Barry.
After our walk, we made collages using the natural objects we had collected whilst in the woods.
Our special trees
We chose a tree in our school grounds to become our special friend and then we used their leaves to find out what type of tree it was. We also measured our tree to find out how old it is. Using all of this information, we made an ebook in Book Creator on the iPads.

Our visit to Bristol Zoo was brilliant!
After some rain-shy lions we headed into the Twilight World where, despite the darkness, we managed to see lots of different creatures. We walked through the bat enclosure and saw the red pandas eating bamboo leaves on our way to lunch (which was in an amazing jungle themed room!).
After lunch we saw loads of penguins and seals showing off their swimming skills. We then had our 'Pet and Animal Care' talk with a Zoo Keeper. This session was really exciting because we got to stroke a chinchilla, hold a cockroach (if we chose to!) and stroke a smooth snake. We also learnt what animals at the zoo, and our pets at home, need to be happy and healthy.
All too soon it was time to head home. We finished with a visit to the gorillas and flamingos and in the final moments the lions saw fit to come outside to say goodbye. Just the ending we needed to our perfect day!
