The Dogs Trust came into school today to provide workshops for Class One and Class Two. The children learnt about how to stay safe around dogs, as well as how to look after dogs so that they are happy and healthy.
The workshops offered children ‘hands on’ opportunities to stroke and groom two dogs- Winnie and Marley. They learnt a safe way to greet and stroke dogs, as well as what to do if they are worried or scared of a dog.
The children discussed about how to care for dogs, including how many times a day to feed them, providing them with fresh water and dealing with fleas.
