Year 2 have been learning all about New Zealand this half term and have been looking at the wildlife found in the country. Having read 'The Smallest Turtle' by Lynley Dodd (and finding that we couldn't quite fit in a school trip to New Zealand to see turtles in their natural habitat!) we opted for the next best thing - Mrs Hyland bringing her pet tortoise, Ruby, in to visit! The boys really enjoyed meeting Ruby, studying her shell, watching her retreat into it and seeing her move around the room. They produced some super descriptive writing about Ruby afterwards, whilst Ruby went home and slept for two days! Thank you Mrs Hyland for sharing Ruby with Year Two.
