Today Mrs Stone and I took a representative from each of our school class families to choose our fish for our new aquarium. We had a good look at all the fish and chose 3 (one for each year group) we then accessorised by buying some colourful pebbles and 3 plants to oxygenate the tank. We then wandered over to look at the rabbits and guinea pigs…the children were so excited to see the animals and decided we should have a pet for school. After much deliberation, we decided we were ready for the responsibility of owning our first ever school pets…guinea pigs. For now they have been named Teddy and Dandelion, we chose a hutch and run for them, stray, hay, wood shavings, food bowl, food and water. Mr Bond is currently building the hutch and we will have our new editions settled tonight. The children said on the way home it was ‘the best day ever’ myself and Mrs Stone have to agree.
