Ronnie and Keith joined us in June 2015, were they were warmly welcomed by the children and parents. The guinea pigs are kept in our classroom, where the children learn how to handle them carefully and participate in the care and feeding in small supervised groups.
We learn to develop a respect for life and a sense of responsibility where living things are concerned, also to increase sensitivity and awareness and consequently strengthen social skills. All of which are key aspects in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
If you would like more information, a RSPCA fact file document has been added to the class page and a link to the RSPCA website. We also enclosed an information flyer for you to share with your child.
