Good morning Reception,
I hope you are having a good week.
Well done to everyone for your fantastic work on Purple Mash! It is lovely to see so many different pieces of work. Avery and Poppi-Ann, your owl babies are very cute.

The story goes - I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me a ......
Draw a picture of what you would ask the zoo for. Can you write the animal's name underneath? Find out any information you can about the animal - What does it eat? Where does it live? How does it move? What are its babies called?
