Isla was looking at a non-fiction book about squirrels. She knew the squirrels ate acorns and she opened an acorn to find the nut inside. She told the children all about squirrels and showed them the non-fiction book. They looked at the predator 'Pine Marten' and were interested to find out how the squirrels could be protected.

Watch out for the Pine Marten!

The following day Zac took an interest in the non-fiction book especially the Pine Marten. He was worried that the Pine Marten might get our squirrels in our surrounding environment so he suggested we make a nest for the squirrel. We also made a squirrel time den for quiet reading. Zac told all the children about the Pine Marten and asked them to help him make his nest.
