## Day 2 of the Animal Hospital

I hope you had a productive day yesterday setting up your premises.

Today we need to think about how your hospital will run smoothly?

Your patients will need signs and directions on what to do and where to go.

You will need welcome signs. And posters.

Tell them what each area does.  Is there a waiting room?

(Don't forget the resources from yesterday  - you may want to use them for inspiration!)

The link below is for a Cbeebies show called ‘Ferne and Rory’s Vet Tales’

You might like to watch it to find out what happens at the vets.

Can you see all of the posters and signs in the vet surgery on the show?  Can you create some for your animal hospital?

The programme also goes to large animals at the zoo – you may have some bigger patients arriving tomorrow!
