Who built the ark?


In RE we are asking the question, ‘What does it mean to follow God?’

How do you think you would manage to build an ark without any power tools, instructions or even YouTube?

Welcome Meerkats!


I am so excited to start the new year with you

Did you know that Meerkats live in groups called ‘mobs’ which are made up of 2-3 families of meerkats. One mob shares a single burrow.

They are highly social animals and they like to play or groom each other.

Besides fun time, each member of the mob has its own duty which benefits the whole group.

When they hunt, some members look out for the predators, while others work on the hunting strategy.

In case of danger, meerkats alert other members of the mob using specific sounds.

What fun facts about Meerkats can you find out?
