Year 1 Bring your Pet to School Day 2023

As part of their memorable experience for the ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’ topic, the Year 1 pupils were invited to bring their pet to school and explain what being responsible and caring for their pet is like.

They thoroughly enjoyed meeting four cats (Bumbery, Loki, Mitty, Ziggy) , two guinea pigs (Doughnut and Silver Galaxy) and one hamster (Humphrey). Most of the pets were very happy and content to be in school. The owners explained about their pets’ eating habits, how to take care of them and what their particular likes and dislikes are. 

Ms Ford said: “It was a lovely opportunity for the girls to share part of their home life at school and so exciting for everyone to meet the animals with the school setting. A great way to kick off the topic.”
