The Animal Man comes to All Saints’ C of E Primary School!
Our Reception and Nursery children were delighted with their visit from the animal man, who brought with him a lovely big fat tarantula, a Tegu lizard, a baby meercat, an owl, a hedgehog, a snake and a chameleon. The children could hold or touch any of the animals they wanted to.
We arranged for the animal man to come in to enhance the early years children’s learning, as their topic this term is ‘Our Wonderful World.’ It gives them the opportunity to closely observe different types of animals. Following on from the children being able to follow the life cycle of a duck, watching them hatch and learning how to care for them, we also have been looking at how other animals look after their babes and which groups they belong too. We have created a photo album of the children with the animals and the ducklings.
