On Wednesday we were lucky enough to have a visit from the animal man Chris.
He brought Alan – a white-faced owl; Miss Fluffy – a Chilean Rose Tarantula; Bandit the Californian King snake; Spud – the flat tailed gecko; Bruce – a blue tongued lizard and a stinky skunk called Bert!
The children spoke about how to look after animals and we related these rules to our Rights – the need for shelter, food and water. Chris shared some interesting facts about the animals including their diet and habitat and reminded us we needed to do good listening, be gentle and to wash our hands after handling the animals.
The children were so brave and had a go at handling all of the animals gently.
