4 Legged Visitors

Today we had a visit from Mrs Rathburn who brought along her and her daughter’s dogs.      

Rufus is a boy and he is 9 years old and Flo is a girl and she is 6 years old. Both dogs loved the treats and were very keen to show off their sitting and meercat skills.

The children loved seeing them and had lots of questions.

These will soon be delivered to Mrs Rathburn.          Image result for paw prints

Both Reception classes would like to say a huge Thank you to Mrs Rathburn, Nicola and of course the stars of the show Rufus and Flo for being so well behaved.
