Hook Day: Animal Crackers 25 April

Today has been Seedlings 'Hook' day. We dressed as animals and enjoyed painting our favourite animal. We found out how to record information on a tally chart to find out our favourite class pet. We then use the tally to make a graph. In the afternoon we enjoyed listening to Mrs Harper, the veterinary nurse who talked to us about how she cares for animals. We learnt about cold blooded animals and looked at a tortoise called ‘Thomas’. We learnt about guinea pigs and looked at their long teeth! Mrs Harper showed us some of her equipment such as a stethoscope to listen to animal’s heartbeat. Finally, we bandaged pet toys using special bandages and enjoyed stroking ‘Whisper’ and 'Gizmo' the guinea pigs.
