A slimy surprise!

Last week Year one received some very strange parcels! Class 3 had a visit from some sea snails whilst class 4 met Simon the land snail!       

We talked about where they might have come from and noticed that we had also been left the story ‘The Snail and the Whale’.

After reading the story we found out the snail had travelled around the world visiting different places.  We discussed where our snails could have been on their travels and and thought about lots of questions we could ask to find out more about them!

We really enjoyed having the snails in our classroom but felt ithe kindest thing we could do was to release them on their next journey to somewhere new.

We are now creating our own stories based on our story map of ‘The snail and the Whale’.
