On Friday 2nd March we will be welcoming an animal handler into school who will bring in a variety of mammals, reptiles and birds to discuss with pupils about their habitats. This links to how human geography impacts upon the environment as well as supporting our learning about physical geography around the world.
To celebrate World Wildlife Day we invited an animal handler into school, Laura bought:
Bill the Giant African Land Snail
Jambo the Royal African Python
Kellogg the Corn Snake
Oliver the Fat Tailed Gheko
Velvet the Crested Gheko
Barry the Horsefield Tortoise
Eric the White Scops Owl
Phil the Tenrec
Esther the Kinkajou
All of the children loved meeting the creatures and were very well-behaved and gentle.

This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features.They should develop their use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
