Scales ‘n’ Tails Visit Reception

This week Scales ‘n’ Tails visited our reception class as part of the children’s learning about nocturnal animals. Children began their nocturnal journey by reading the book ‘Owl Babies’. The children were fascinated that the owl was awake when they were asleep and were eager to find out what other nocturnal animals there were. Vikki from Scales ‘n’ Tails helped answer their question by bringing along some very interesting animals. Children were allowed to stroke and handle Fudge the skunk, Megatron the cockroach, Spongebob and Patrick-African snails, Mille the millipede, Clover the hedgehog and Doop the duprasi fat tailed gerbil!

Did you know Fudge the skunk has a very smelly pump! This helps scare away potential attackers.

Tia said “I liked the hedgehog the best because it was cute!” Owen said “I learnt that hedgehogs used its  prickles to scare away other animals”. The class have continued the nocturnal theme by writing about them, using them in repeating patterns in maths and cutting out animal pictures.
