Unusual Pets!

The Swan class have been looking at how we can classify animals into groups such as mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, etc. We have been learning about what attributes these creatures have which help us to classify them. The children have been asking many questions. Is it hot or cold blooded? Does it give birth to live young? Does it like to live on land and in water? What better way to find out about these creatures than to get up close and personal to them. Two of the children in our class have some very unusual pets which they brought to school. We welcomed stick insects, Toto the tortoise and Ludo the Bearded Dragon Lizard. We even had a real life hunting moment as Ludo gobbled up some live grasshoppers for a snack!
