Giant African Land Snails
Date: 7th Dec 2018 @ 9:35am
Children have shown lots of interest in mini beasts. We have been digging up our old flowers ready to plant some vegetables. The children were amazed to find 4 caterpillars. We handled them so carefully and put them and some worms in our bug hotel. We wrote letters to Mrs Bell to ask her if we could possibly get a class pet. Mrs Bell enjoyed reading our letters and she said yes! We researched how to look after snails. We got a special package. We excitedly opened it up and it was a snail tub with a snail inside. Over the weekend Miss Mackenzie visited Lydia and brought home another snail. We all choose a name for the snails and then had a class vote to decide on the final names. The butterfly class named their snail Rocket and the ladybird class named their snail Rainbow. A few days later we discovered a new baby snail and we cannot wait for it to get as big as Rocket and Rainbow.
