Today we have a company called "Amazing Animal Encounters" visiting our Tonbridge site. They are introducing our primary children to some very unusual animals: a Tarantula, a Madagascan Cockroach (called Dorothy), a Giant Land Snail, a Pygmy Hedgehog (called Bramble), a Rabbit and a Skunk!
Each class is taking a turn to meet the animals, be told about them and have an opportunity to hold and/or touch them. Some of the children are very curious and haven't even hesitated in coming forward, some are being curious from a safe distance! (Indeed the staff are responding the same way as the children - some keen, and some not so keen and all just quietly hoping the Skunk doesn't share its spray!)
