Pets at Home


Our Lighthouse children in Foundation Stage, Y1, Y2 and Y3 enjoyed an informative visit to the Godalming Pets at Home shop as part of our literacy topic work. The staff were welcoming and enthusiastic and led a wonderful animal handling session for us so that we could hold 4 month old rabbits, 8 week old guinea pigs, sleepy gerbils and active rats. The children loved the opportunity to learn about how to care for the various pets and gained confidence in handling them. A highlight for several of the children was watching the rats climb! We also loved the rabbits and guinea pigs who tried to hide under our feet and we all learnt new information about pets. The children also fun helping to choose and buy pet care products to practise real life shopping skills.
