Today we had a visit from a very special guest, a hippo!!
The hippo was dressed up half Scottish and half African. He brought lots of books with him. The children read lots of stories and watched a documentary all about hippos. They then wrote their own books, some were fiction and some were non fiction.
Primary 1 were so surprised to have a special visitor in our class! The David Livingstone Hippo enjoyed helping us to learn about African animals in French like l’hippopotame! We also read the story ‘Hippo Wears a Hat’ and designed a brand new hat for the hippo. We ended the day by learning a song all about hippos and we sang it to our special visitor. We hope the hippo enjoyed his/her day in Primary 1!
