Dear Zoo

I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me some tortoises! They were perfect so I kept them.

When we returned to nursery, we shared the story ‘Dear Zoo’. The children were inspired to send letters to the zoo and they drew pictures of animals that they would like to keep as a pet. The next day, we heard a knock on the door and the zoo keeper had delivered us two pets! We have welcomed two tortoises to nursery and we have been learning all about how to take care of them. They are very much loved and cared for!

The older children in the school entered a competition to name the tortoises and the nursery children voted and chose their favourites– Timmy and Tommy!

Please feel free to come and visit Timmy and Tommy after school!
