Sam’s Safari

Yesterday F2 joined Sam on safari to find out lots of interesting facts about her animals. The first animal we met was Sally the snail. She was almost as large as Sam’s hand. Sam told us that Sally was an African snail  and that when she hatched she already had a shell.

We pretended to be snail!


Then we saw the lizards Barry and Bertie.





Popcorn the snake came out to meet us. She doesn’t have any eyelids so has to sleep with her eyes open.


We all liked the turtle. He had a hard shell to hide inside when he thinks there is danger.


Sam’s ferrets were the next animals we met. They were very soft to touch but had to go back into their cage before Freeman the guinea  pig and Basil the rabbit came out.  Sam told us that ferrets like to eat meat and were good hunters.


We had great fun meeting all the animals.




Time to plant

Some of our seeds need to be planted inside before they are planted out. We filled the pots with compost and then planted a flower seed. 


Spring is here

Now that the weather is getting warmer F2 have been getting our garden area ready for planting. There were lot’s of weeds to take out of the tubs. Everyone helped to pull them out and put them into the compost bin. Once the weeds had gone we dug the soil so that we could star planting. Watch out for updates on our progess.


What’s in the eggs?

Last week an incubator and seven eggs were delivered to school. F2 were very excited to hear this as they have been learning about animals and know about different animals that lay eggs. The children went to see the eggs in Miss Price’s classroom and tried to guess what creatures will hatch out of them.
