World Animal Day:

We were treated to a visit from animal expert, Theo Blossom, in order to celebrate World Animal Day. Theo has previously worked at London Zoo and the Natural History Museum so was very well placed to give our children an informative and engaging morning. The children learnt all about vertebrates and invertebrates, had the chance to consider animal classification as well as coming face to face with a water beetle and getting hands on with a tortoise. The children were thoughtful and inquisitive, really engaging with Theo and all that he was sharing with them. A particular highlight of the morning was having the chance to touch the tortoise whose skin some children thought was “surprisingly squishy”. A brilliant morning had by all and another fabulous opportunity for some hands-on learning.
