A visit from Spirit of the Wild – Wednesday 15th January 2020
Today, year 5 and 6 were lucky to receive a visit from Spirit of the Wild. As part of our topic, The Rainforests, the children were introduced to animals from this type of environment. Ben gave us lots of information about these animals, lots of which will come in very useful in future topic lessons.
Some of the children were picked to handle some of the exhibited animals, which included: The Amazonian yellow-thighed parrot, The hissing cockroach, A millipede, The Brazilian black spider, An African bullfrog, The red foot tortoise, A crested gecko, A boa constrictor, A fruit bat and a python.
All of the children were excellently behaved throughout the two hour session and learned lots about the rainforests and the animals that inhabit these parts of the world.
