Meet our new pets!
Our Moss Side nursery recently got some new additions, they go by the names of Giant, Turbo, Mina and Flash!
The children have been helping to keep the snails clean and well fed, look at how healthily they are eating!
Looking after the snails helps children to develop really valuable skills such as:
Maths- we can count the snails and talk about their size and shape
English- we can find words to describe the snails such as ‘slimy’, ‘slow’ and ‘slither’
Personal Skills- we learn to be patient and to share, as well as learning to take responsibility for tasks such as feeding and cleaning.
