We had some special visitors to the school today on Day 2 of Science Week. Two tortoises came in!
Charlotte led sessions with all the children, again from pre-school to Year 6, giving them information about the tortoises, such as where they originated from, their diet etc. The children were given opportunities to ask questions about them too.
However, excitingly the school was able to take part in a poll to help name them as there was discussion about what to call them. Would it be dad’s choice: Bert/Ernie, mum’s choice: Jeff/Ge-off or would it be Steve/Tony the boys’ choice (after the characters Iron Man and Captain America)?
After all the pupils had cast their vote, the names were announced in Happy Assembly. Steve and Tony!
Thank you so much to Charlotte and her family for giving us this experience at school. The children loved meeting the tortoises.
