Today was our Big Fit Walk. We set off while the sun was shining this morning.There were a few showers along the way, but we just put our hoods up and we were quite happy to be out walking in the fresh air.
When we got to the park, we couldn’t believe it ! As if by magic a picnic had appeared under the big tree. We were glad to have a rest and have our snack.
Then we had time for a play!
We think the day was a huge success. As we were walking, we were playing I Spy, singing songs, counting cars, practicing road safety, looking at plants and flowers and listening to birds. We even saw a squirrel! There was lots of chatting to our friends. We loved having family and friends to join us. What a great day!
We went back to the Pet Shop to take pictures of the animals. We saw a tiny turtle, a little black and white guinea pig and lots of noisy budgies! We liked some of the toys for the animals, some of them were Spongebob Squarepants which we thought was very funny!
We had a lovely walk to Clarkston to visit the Pet Shop and Vets We visited the pet shop to see the animals there. On our visit the children were able to name the Parrot and hear it talk. When we were in the shop the Shop Keeper showed us all the different foods that nimals need to stay healthy and nurtured. We were able to see that animals have different living environments and needs. We saw fish, birds, bearded dragons, rabbits, and locusts.
We saw baby bunnies and budgies which looked like our easter chicks.
We also watched a dog at the groomers getting his coat taken off for spring time. ‘He is pretty.’ We talked about taking off our heavy coats as it is warmer now. The man in the pet shop allowed us to scan items in the shop to explore how a cash register works. We bought a little bird feeder for our bird box outside.
