Yesterday we welcomed Chloe from Zoo Lab into Year 2. Chloe brought lots of different species of mini-beasts to share with the children.
We found out lots of information which will be useful this term as we investigate all about different mini-beasts and their habitats.
Can you remember how long Garry the Madagascan hissing cockroach can survive without his head?
How many eyes does Charlotte the tarantula have is it 8, 10 or 16?
We also met Speedy the Giant African land snail who can grow as big as a football and has more teeth than a human.
Barry has 240 legs, two heads but no eyes. Can you remember what type of mini-beast this is?
Ziggy was Mrs Saveall’s favourite visitor and even Miss Fretton stroked him!
Ziggy is a corn snake and he uses his tongue to smell, he can open his mouth so wide that he can swallow his prey whole.
Can you blog back the answers to our questions and also tell us who was your favourite visitor?
We hope you had as much fun as the teachers did yesterday and we can’t wait to find out more in our exciting topic of ‘Wriggle and Crawl’
