On Thursday 13th of May one of our mums, Emma Whitaker, who is the head vet at Midland Veterinary Surgery in Leyton came to talk to our children. She talked to the children about how to be safe with dogs in public teaching them how to be "a tree" if a dog runs up to them in the park and a "stone" if they get knocked down. The Kennel Club website has more information on this https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/training/safe-and-sound/safe-and-sound-for-parents-and-the-general-public/.
She also brought along a bag of tricks and the children got to pick different objects out of the bag which Emma would tell them about. They pulled out things like; syringes for medicines, a microchip scanner, tick remover, bandages, a model of an ear and model teeth.The children then got to have a go at bandaging toy animals, scanning a microchip in a toy animal and dressing up as vets. There was also an extra special visit from a four legged friend who enjoyed coming for a walk in the preschool garden. The morning was rounded off with a vet themed story in our outdoor story circle.
