Year Two had a fantastic start to our day with a visit from the World life Animal visits. We were lucky enough to be able to see and touch a ghecko, a millipede, an african land snail, a tarantula, a madagascan hissing cockroach, a scorpion and a python. It was fantastic to be able to see some of the animals up close through the use of Hannah and Dave's special microscopic camera. We learnt lots of fantastic facts about the animals.
Millipedes can shred- Patrick.
A reticulated python is the biggest snake in the world- Oliver.
If you step on a cockroach it will not survive, but it can survive for up to 3 days without a head- Ted.
A ghecko has 3 eyes, one is on the top of it's head- Conrad.
Millipedes curl up into a ball when they are scared- Isabelle.
Milliepede's have 260 legs- Alannah.
A tarantula could blind you- Alex.
Mrs Dennis and Mrs Horsley.
Year Two had great fun this morning learning some new, circus based skills. There was plate spinning, juggling, stilt walking, hula hooping and much more!! We all had a great time and a huge thank you must go to the PTA for the funds that they have raised to allow for all of these exciting opportunities.
Year Two had a great morning exploring rock pools and learning about the different species that could be found in a rock pool. We enjoyed touching some of the different crabs and had a go at creating our own plasticine models. We also read the story of Sally and the limpet.
Over the next few weeks we have some more exciting visitors planned, watch this space to see some of the other exciting visits that we have coming up.
