Meet Sonic

Meet our new class pet, Sonic, an African Land Snail! We have been learning how to look after him and what to feed him as well as finding out lots of interesting facts about snails.

Did you know? 

  • Snails cannot hear. To find food, they use their sense of smell.
  • Snails leave slime behind them as they travel. The slime protects them as they move.
  • Snails are nocturnal. They are most likely to come out at night or very early in the morning.
  • Snails can live for 15 to 20 years, but that is probably good since it may take them that long to cross the garden!

Snail Hunt

Today, as it had been raining, we decided to go on a snail hunt! Our hunt was very successful and we collected quite a few snails. We brought them back into the classroom to study how they move. We noticed that as they moved, they left behind a trail of slime. This special slime allows the snails to move along without getting stuck and it also allows them to move along upside down.

Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell

 In English, we have been reading a book about a slug called Norman who desperately wants to be a snail like all his friends.  We talked about how we are all different and none of us are the same and that it is important to be ourselves and celebrate our differences and who we are!
