Check out Helford Pets 18 Sep 2013

A major task has been deciding on what pet we wanted in Helford Class. Obviously it had to be a suitable pet to keep in a classroom as well as be awake and love being handled by lots of children on a daily basis. A data handling lesson helped sort this out and hamsters/gerbils came out on top as you can see from our bar chart.
Our two happy gerbils were purchased by our wonderful Teaching Assistant Mrs Skewes as a gift to the class. Inspired by this terms topic in Music ‘The Beatles’, our gerbils are now named: Ringo (the black one) and Star.
They are very happy and have settled well into school life. They are currently inundated with cardboard tubes, love and affection from all the children. Long may this continue as we learn to look after them and keep them clean.
