What a lovely few days the Nursery have had finding out about the care of tortoises and why some tortoises need to hibernate.
The children made tortoise biscuits, and tortoise pictures to go on our display. They also prepared our toy tortoises for hibernation in the small world area.
Mr Cheeseman kindly brought in Dora and Bernie, his six year old tortoises, for the children to handle and feed. It was lovely and warm in the Nursery so the tortoises were happy to roam freely in their own little pen.
