Year 1 had a very exciting visitor on Friday - Rocky the Tortoise! The children have been learning all about different animal groups, and they were very excited to learn lots of interesting new facts about a reptile like Rocky. They learnt how to hold Rocky properly, that he likes being tickled under his chin, that some of his favourite foods are strawberries and lettuce, and that he is allergic to avocados! The interesting powerpoint presentation really helped to consolidate the children's knowledge of reptiles and they all had lots of fun. The children all got a chance to hold Rocky and stroke him, as well as watch him race along the hall at a surprisingly quick pace!
