On Wednesday 20th of March the JRSO’s held a Beep Beep day to help the younger ones to learn about road safety. We read a book to them about walking safely around the road. We then held a game of corners. Then to finish everything off we made a mock up of a road and taught them how to cross it safely.
On Thursday the 17th Zoolab visited us to talk about the Rainforests and the animals that live in them. Tristan who was the person who came in brought along a tarantula ( called Tinkerbell) , a royal python ( called Hector) , a tortoise (called pancake), some hissing cockroaches, a rat and a horned toad. We all got to handle or touch some of them.
