Year 1 Medivet Visit

As part of their Paws, Claws and Whiskers topic, Year 1 have had visits from The Dog’s Trust and vets from the Medivet practice. The vets brought a special guest, Poppy the dog! They explained how owners look after their dogs and how vets can care and treat animals if they get sick. The children had the opportunity to feed and groom Poppy, and locate her microchip using a special device. They also dressed up in special clothes the vets wear when treating animals and demonstrated how to give vaccinations on a very nervous Mrs Ransom. At the end of the session Poppy performed lots of tricks which the children thoroughly enjoyed watching.
