Our School Pets
We love our pets. They help us to learn about animals, how we need to look after them, feed them and keep them clean. They help us develop a sense of responsibility. We take it in turns to look after them. We also find that the animals help us when we feel anxious or upset, they are very good listeners! Our school cat is called Cilla. She loves nothing more than finding a quiet corner to curl up and snooze and can often be found in front of the fireplace in the upper school library or by the radiator in the office. Cilla loves comforting children when they are unhappy or lonely, but most of all she likes to make them laugh by showing off. She has her own Twitter account @OutwoodsCat.
Bobby is our new kitten- he stays in the offices and helps welcome our visitors.
We also have some pet visitors that pop in often. Chico is an Assistance dog who listens to readers every week and comes along with his owner Jane to help in the library.
Mario is a delightful guinea pig who lives in our Year 1 classroom. Mario is a very friendly little guy who loves a cuddle and a carrot. Mario also has his own page, full of photos, on the Sombrero class page!
Luigi lives in between our two Reception classes. Luigi is a shy guinea pig who likes to hide under his bridge! He loves to eat broccoli and kale, and likes watching what the people around him are doing. He has a very loud squeak!
Pebbles is a ginger guinea pig who is living his best life in between our two Reception classes. Pebbles does not like to be ignored and he will squeal at the top of his voice to get attention.
Pumpkin is a friendly guinea pig who lives in Reception. He is also very lazy, and is often sleeping amongst the hay - even whilst in a classroom of reception children!
