Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Slimy Snails

Our week with the snails

The children had lots of fun this week learning about snails! They brought in snails that they found over the weekend and we made a snail house to go with our snail hotel. We watched a video about snail facts and found out what food they like to eat. The children put food out for them and kept them cool by spraying them with water to create rain. We then made salt dough snails and paper plate snails. !  We are sending home our salt dough snails, but they need cooking. Place in a pre-heated cool oven (lowest setting) for 3-4 hours in total! Once they are cooled, please decorate them as your holiday project and take photos for us to see. Any photos sent to us will be shared with the class and your child will be put on the superstar.

The children went on a snail hunt in the Foundation Stage garden and our Super Star Challenge this week was to label the parts of a snail! We have also watched the film Turbo as an end of term treat and made popcorn too!
