Children in Year 1 have thoroughly enjoyed visiting Pets Corner in Thatcham this week. They explored the different items you need to buy to look after various pets and looked at the pets for sale. The corn snake had shed its skin, which we were able to bring back to school and look at more closely. Some children were lucky enough to see a dog being groomed and a dog being weighed. The children were particularly fascinated by what snakes eat and very much intrigued by the freezer full of frozen rats and chicks! The favourite by far though was the tortoise. The children walked very sensibly to and from the pet shop, which was quite a distance for little legs! We are very proud of their impeccable behaviour. The children are now busy planning what pet we could get for Year 1 and looking forward to Hannah the veterinary nurse visiting school on Monday 9th October.
