SS PHILIP AND JAMES PRIMARY SCHOOL,
I had a great time with early years and years one and two last week. Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome.
We made snail trails and drew pictures, though only once the snails had been released from their tank! Thanks for listening so nicely to our family writing story and for taking great care holding Gary, the eggs and the shell of old Grumpy in his glass jar.
Everyone at school had written and presented their own stories or poems and laid them out on tables in the corridors for any visitor to see. You even had a sheet on the back for comments, which I thought was a brilliant idea.
I’m looking forward to receiving all your colouring competition entries and to picking out the best one with Amy. The winner will get a baby giant African land snail to take home and take care of.
Thanks to Michelle for making all the arrangements, and to all the lovely teachers for being so enthusiastic. Hope to see you all soon.
WATERSTONE’S EASTER SNAIL HUNT
Come and join us on Saturday 16th April between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm for a snail hunt at Waterstone’s in Alton High Street.
There’ll be balloons and goodie bags, as well as the chance to see Bob and Gary, our six year old African land snails.
Come and see the baby snails. Come and hold one of these lovely molluscs (wipes available). See what it looks like when a snail’s walking upside down …. and if you’d like to buy a madaboutsnailbook, I’ll be there to sign it with my purple smelly pen.
By the way, if anyone has a snail they no longer want, we’re happy to take it back and pass it onto another good home, all free of charge.
For another freebie, why don’t you go into Waterstone’s between now and the 16th and grab yourself a free madaboutsnailbook bookmark?
See you all in Alton on the 16th!
