On Friday we had a visitor called Matthew from Zoolab. He brought some amazing creatures some of which we were able to handle. The children were fascinated by the animals and the facts that they learned. The session made links with our Science that we have covered in Year 3 in particular ‘Animals including Humans’ which looked at nutrition, the skeleton and movement.
We all got up close with an African Giant Snail, a Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, an Emperor Scorpion, a Corn Snake, a Australian Tree Frog, a Giant African Millipede and Domestic Rats- Apollo and Hades.
What was your favourite animal? What facts did you learn during the session?
