It was brilliant for the Year 1 children to consolidate their science knowledge and understanding of mini beasts this week with the hands on bug workshop with Andrew Grantham from Animal Intuition.
Andrew brought along his pets to meet the children. They included: a Giant African millipede, 2 large cockroaches, a Giant African snail and a Tarantula! He also brought along a predator of mini beasts, in the form of a very cute tree frog.
Andrew reinforced the children’s prior learning with lots of facts and stories, as well as teaching them new words, such as: detritivore, which is a word that describes an animal that lives off eating dead plants and animals. We all learn something new every day.
