Zoolab visit

On Friday, Sam from Zoolab came into school to show and tell us about some of her small animal friends from all over the world, with a focus on those animals who help with the environment.

 She introduced us to:

A snake called Wriggle

A rat called Louis

A gigantic African snail called Slimey

A frog called Kermit

Terry the venomous spider

and not forgetting...

A cockroach called Colin!

Click through to the main blog to see the animals for yourself!

The children were in awe at the opportunity to get a close look at the animals and heard some fascinating facts all about them. Many children even took the opportunity to over come their life-long fears of some of the animals!!!!!!!

'I never thought in a million years I'd touch a rat!' Niamh

RSPB: Big Garden Birdwatch

In this morning's assembly children were introduced to the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch - the world's largest wildlife survey!
As an activity that started life as something for our youth membership to do in winter, Big Garden Birdwatch has grown into fun for all the family. All you need to do is count the birds in your garden or a local park for one hour then tell us what you see.
If, like us, you love wildlife and want to do something to help, this is your chance to get involved in something that really counts.
Many of the children have bought this home as a homework but if you would like more information you can also visit www.rspb.org.uk
