No it’s not a football!
During our Life Bus visit we spoke about physical needs: water, air, food, sleep, shelter and exercise. Colin the hamster also has physical needs and owning a pet means you have to take care of those needs.
We looked at how to clean and care for an animal and wrote instructional texts including bossy language (imperative verbs) and adverbs. As part of our safety week we also discussed how to keep safe around animals and how to keep them safe.
