The great snail race!


On Tuesday 7th May 2019 we had a snail race in class. First we went outside to the playground and hunted under the hedgerow to find snails. We put them in a container with some leaves and one by one they began to wake up. There were big ones and small ones and especially slimy ones. Once we were back inside the classroom we took it in turns to choose a snail and placed them on a snail racing track.

And they're off!

The children loved the snail race and below you can see some photographs of our experience.
