Children play at being vet for the day

Children from Eccleshall Pre School and eBASH have been learning about animals and how to look after them, thanks to a visit from staff and animals at Shires Veterinary Practice.

As part of the visit, children aged 2 to 11 heard all about working life as a vet and met some of the animals they look after, as well as taking turns with some of the equipment that vets use.

Manager Sally Rowen explains;

“We have a rolling programme of fun, educational activities that all the children enjoy. When staff from the veterinary practice visited the children had a go at bandaging soft toys, looking at insects through microscopes and dressing up. We’d like to thank everyone at the practice for giving their time and giving the children a great view into what vets and a veterinary practice do to care for animals.”

She continued “The visit was part of our calendar of recent events and activities which have included creating a new book corner for the bookstore week and making passports and postcards for travel agents week.  During our food shop week we did lots of food tasting, which was very popular as well as learning about healthy food choices and designing the children’s own shops.  We are certainly very busy having lots of fun!”
