Children had a fantastic time on Friday meeting a variety of different animals in a safe and supported environment.
The children were very enthusiastic and really enjoyed the workshop. They were encouraged to carefully touch the animals, if they wanted to and taught how to do this gently and safely.
We learnt about a variety of different animals and where they came from and talked about how they looked and felt. The children were encouraged to carefully touch the animals, if they wanted to and taught how to do this gently and safely.
Brendan brought lots of different animals, all of which are his much loved family pets. Each year he bring a different selection of animals and this year was no exception. We were treated to a wide range of beautiful creatures, from furry guinea pigs and chinchillas to smooth corn snakes, slimy snails, hissing cockroaches, a giant millipede, a gecko and a pair of bearded dragon lizards.
The children really benefitted from this fantastic experience and Brendan commented on how impressed he was with their concentration, listening and behaviour and also how carefully they touched his lovely animals.
