Year 5 have been reading and studying the book "Born To Run" by Michael Morpurgo about the many lives of a racing greyhound. The book has really captured the children's interest and imagination and they have produced some fantastic descriptive and persuasive pieces in writing. On Thursday 25th September they were surprised when a real life greyhound arrived in their classroom! Flash is a retired greyhound who was homed through the Kent Greyhound Rescue Team. They kindly agreed to allow one of their volunteers and dogs to visit the school to answer questions and allow the children to have an up close and personal meeting with a greyhound. Many thanks to KGR and Katrina Farley for making this happen.
The Year 5 team would like to apologise to parents if your children are all asking to adopt a greyhound now!
