Wonderful Fun and Learning at The Wildlife Workshops: 27/05/16

Children had a fantastic time today with Brendan, who brought in some of his pets for us to look at, learn about and handle in a safe and supported environment.

The children were very excited and enthusiastic  to meet the animals really enjoyed the workshop. They were encouraged to look at the animals closely and carefully touch the animals, if they wanted to and taught how to do this gently and safely. We also reinforced to them that it was fine if they didn't want to touch them and they just said no thank you.

We learnt about lots of different animals and where they came from and talked about how they looked and felt. The children did lots of really good talking using some great descriptive language.

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 a furry rabbit,  guinea pigs and chinchillas to smooth corn snakes, hissing cockroaches, a tarantula 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 all the children, their confidence, care and fantastic behaviour and also how carefully they touched his lovely animals.
