Reception Zoolab visit

On Tuesday 6th February, our Reception children were visited by Zoolab as part of their mini beasts topic. 

During the course of the afternoon they got to stroke some giant snails (named Shelly and Sheldon), peeked in at a tarantula (Matilda) and handled a hissing cockroach (aka Dora the Explorer). The highlight of the afternoon was when they met a  very friendly corn snake named Tata. The bravest of our children (and staff) stroked or held Tata whilst the rest were happy to watch from a distance. 


The children all really enjoyed the visit and had great hands on experience. Thank you to the parents for supporting this activity.
