After writing a fantastic set of persuasive letters to Miss Rogers, Year 6 have two new additions to their outdoor common room area - two very cute rabbits called Bluebell and Buttercup!
The rabbits have settled in really well and have enjoyed their first day at Great Binfields! Bluebell and Buttercup come from Sparsholt Agricultural College, where Mrs Osborne's friend Gemma works. In a few week's time, Gemma will be coming in to visit the Year 5 and 6 children to check how the rabbits are and to deliver a talk all about looking after them.
Here are some quotes from a few of the year 6 children:
"The bunnies are absolutely adorable and the fact I was the first boy to hold one filled me with pride!" Xander
"It is the best experience of my life! I think Bluebell loves me already!" Lewis
"They are as soft as a marshmallow cloud!" Sophie
"I think I will be good at looking after these bunnies as I already have one at home." Millie
