A surprise arrival…

Year 5 were surprised to discover that they will be responsible for a group of elvers (baby eels) after Easter! Yesterday, the tank was set up ready for the arrival of the eels and the children excitedly discussed what their responsibilities will be over the next few months. In July, the children will take the elvers that they will have taken care of to the River Kennet, to release the critically endangered species back into the wild.
