Exmoor Zoo Keeper Visit - January 2019

Tuesday, 15th January 2019
Thanks to the money raised by the School Council at our Bonfire Night we were able to arrange for a Zoo Keeper to visit Reception and Key Stage One for the day.
The Zoo Keeper brought with her an owl, a snake, a cockroach and a meerkat.
The children learnt all about where these animals live, what they eat and how to look after them and the differences between birds, mammals and reptiles.
If the children wanted to they could all touch the snake, cockroach and meerkat and the keeper brought out some very long snake skin for the children to handle.
The owl even flew from the keeper back into its box,
