Diana from Blue Cross (Pet Rescue) came to host an assembly at our school. She talked to us about: how to look after pets; what pets require (food, water, care, love, exercise) and the importance of being kind to animals. Our children learnt, through role play, how to approach an unknown dog and the three Cs of canine choice - check, call, count. Check is asking the owner if you can stroke the dog, call is calling the dog to you by patting your legs and saying 'Hello' and count is when you count three strokes and give the dog the choice to walk away or stay.
What a brilliant and very informative assembly for our pet-loving pupils!
