Caring for our pets
Following on from our visit last term by the PDSA, Mrs Lavelle, our Assistant Head for Early Years, decided to look into setting up a new after school club involving animal care and so. on the 16th January our newly formed Pet Club began. Demand was so high for places in the club that Mrs Lavelle will be changing the groups each half term, to allow all of the children who expressed an interest in the club to have a turn at club membership.
The first club session involved learning about caring for a variety of pets in general and that was followed up this week by a visit from Mrs Lavelle's own guinea pigs who completely captivated the children. The children all had the chance of a cuddle and to groom the guinea pigs as well as learning more about what they eat and how to care for them.
