There has been great excitement in Reception this week as the African Land Snails have arrived! We were expecting 2 snails but were very fortunate to receive 3. They have been named as Slimy, Spike and Speedy. We have learnt how to spell ‘snail’ just look at our writing. The children have remembered to wash their hands both before and after handling the snails and have been very gentle whilst they have held them. This afternoon they decided to have a snail race with them but the snails were not that good at staying in their lanes. The race was abandoned after 22 minutes when the snails left the course. We will keep you updated on the snail developments.
