Charlie’s dad visits Year 1

Freefall sky-diving at 250 miles an hour from 14,000 feet…swimming right to the very edge of the waterfall at Victoria Falls and taking a micro-flight over the same amazing water….these are just some of the adventures Charlie’s daddy told Year 1 about in his visit to the class today. Mr McNeilly showed the children photographs of exciting visits to Africa, Mount Everest, Australia and Fraser Island where sharks live in the sea.  On Table Mountain, in South Africa  he saw penguins and snakes – and ostriches who can run 50 miles an hour! In Zambia, Charlie’s daddy saw a rhino, zebra and giraffes.

Mr McNeilly showed the children photos on his laptop…this is Mont Everest in the Himalayas

Charlie helped with telling the class lots of amazing facts and numbers related to temperatures, heights, distances and times.

The children are learning about countries of the world and where they are in relation to us and each other
