On Monday 13th March, Year 6 were visited by Maria from The Dog’s Trust. She delivered a presentation and workshop to each class about how dogs went from being wild animals to pets, and also reminded the children about how to stay safe around dogs and the key things you must do to look after a dog.
They looked at how dogs originated from wolves and how they started to interact with humans. The children then did an activity to see how much DNA different breeds of dogs have in common with wolves.
The children then covered the importance of brushing dog’s fur, the correct amount of food, and the correct amount of exercise they need each day as well as health check-ups and treatments.
