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?
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.
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!
