Weird and Wonderful Animals – Year 1

We are so lucky in Year 1 as we have organised an extremely exciting visit from the animal lady. She will be coming in to our school this Wednesday, bringing lots of interesting animals! This visit has been subsidised by the school and on this occasion will be free for the Year 1 children.

Some of the animals that will be visiting are lizards, snakes, a hedgehog, a spider, a millipede, a skunk, a racoon, birds and a frog.
