Pupil Voice Today

La Danse and Le volleyball were lucky enough to have had a visit from the Zoo Lab. This is what they thought about their experience;

Kaylin said “I didn’t really like the spider, it was gigantic and it had lots of red bits on it.  I really liked the snake because it was long and wriggly.”

Lillie-Mae said “I liked it but I got scared a little bit because they had animals that I didn’t like, like the scorpion and the lobster.”

Aliesha said “I met a snail today his name was Simba.  He was brown and a little bit big.”

Timeo said “I saw a snake, it was very long, I was scared but I touched it.  It felt smooth, I saw its little tongue it was red.”

Taylor said “The lady asked us all to turn around and imagine that there was a sloth behind us, when we turned back round I saw her holding a snake and I was very scared.  I touched the snake and really liked it.  I think it was 20 years old.”

Hayden said “When I saw all the animals I was scared of some of them.  I was scared of the snake but to make sure it didn’t hurt me I made myself touch it.  After I had touched it and once everyone else in the class had touched it, the lady asked me if I would like to put him away, so I put him in his tank.  I like snakes now and the scorpion.  The scorpion looked really cool!”

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
