The children are learning how to look after Curly Bob (named by our last cohort of Year R children). He is a millipede and is only 7 months. We feed him lettuce and cucumber, and we have to remember he likes to be touched gently, and with kind hands. We learnt that he likes his home to be muddy – with lots of deep mud for Curly Bob to burrow down into – with moist soil. So we spray his home each week!
