Bugfest

28th January 2019
Not for the faint-hearted!
We had a visit from 'Bugfest' who brought a selection of creepy crawlies for the children to handle and to learn about.
Most of the children were very brave and handled tarantulas, cockroaches, giant snails and a giant millipede.
 
'Twilight Sparkle' the enormous tarantula was a particular hit with the children, perhaps not so much with the staff!
 
The visit was part of Year 3/4's science topic of 'Habitats'. The children were fascinated by some of the clever adaptations that insects have developed to keep themselves safe and free from parasites.
 
Although the visit was primarily for Badger class the whole school had the opportunity to take part in a bugs assembly at the end of the day.
