Animal Magic!

The school has been buzzing with the sound of chattering children all excited about our animal visitors today! 

Mr Price came into school to show us a collection of African animals he keeps at his small zoo in St Ives. He brought a meercat (called Itchy), a chameleon, a tarantula, a python (called Charlie), a scorpion and an albino hedgehog. We had the chance to touch and hold the snake, meercat and tarantula. Some children (and teachers) really faced their fears and took a risk to see what they felt like! Lots of great learning habits being shown off!

The children learnt so much and had so many great questions. I'm sure any child would be able to tell you something they have learnt from the day.
