Out of the Wild, Into the Classroom
The Junior School Wildlife Club went up close and personal with reptiles and invertebrates from around the world in a visit from The Wild Roadshow.
Pupils in Years 3 to 6, including members of the Senior School Eco Society, were excited to handle animals such as a bearded dragon, a giant millipede and a royal python in a workshop delivered by the specialists in exotic creatures.
Jamie, from The Wild Roadshow also informed pupils on the origin, natural habitat and eating habits of each of the animals, as the Wildlife Club members gained a first-hand feel of their unfamiliar bodies.
Junior School Outdoor Learning Teacher, Mrs Lucinda Hodges said: “All the pupils learned a great deal from Jamie. This was an excellent opportunity for them to handle unusual animals in a safe environment and we now look forward to visiting CHS’s own bearded dragons in the Senior School Biology department.”
