Rats in the classroom

We are very excited to have 2 rats taking a holiday in our classroom. Genevieve and Liam are on holiday in Fiji. So, Smokey and Stormy (the rats) are staying with us. We have learnt so much about them already. Here are the main things to remember if you come into Sanderson Whanau this week:

No fingers in the cage - the rats will bite.
Be quiet - use whispers, no loud noises, thanks.
Keep the door closed - NO CATS ALLOWED!
Do not feed the rats - Eleanor and Oren will feed them.

Smokey and Stormy are feeling at home in Sanderson Whanau.
We all wrote about the rats today.
