Junior’s Experiential Animal Workshop with Creature Ark

21st May 2024

The students (and staff!) in Wakefield Girls’ Junior Section were thrilled to meet so many amazing and fascinating animals on Monday 20th May when Mags from Creature Ark came to visit. 

As part of our Science work, we learned all about vertebrates and invertebrates, how animals adapt to their environment, food chains and animal diets as well as meeting some wonderful creatures up close. We saw and held snakes, tarantulas and rats (who were absolutely gorgeous!) and a hedgehog and tortoise, who did a full lap inside the Year 3 circle of girls! We were surprised how speedy she was. Some classes also saw giant cockroaches, a lizard and a pair of mischievous guinea pigs. 

We learned so much from our session with Mags and her animals, and we’re looking forward to the next visit.
