Petting reptiles and rodents!30/01/19
On Thursday 24th January, Year 1 pupils experienced petting reptiles and rodents with River, who kindly came into school.
The children met, petted and handled Gus the rat, Mia the corn snake, Coco the tortoise, Dude the blue tongued lizard and Mr Potter the guinea pig.
Red, Green and Blue class each had a period of time with River, asking questions they had previously prepared in English lessons. They learnt about whether River’s pets were omnivores, carnivores or herbivores. We also discussed whether they gave birth to live young or laid eggs. Year 1 loved learning about their different habitats and their clever camouflage.
Thank you River! Mrs Hunt.
