On Tuesdau 23rd August, we had our annual visit from Zoo Lab to see our Toddler City 2 and School Ville children.
This year we chose the story of Morph the Munching Millipede. Which is a story based on The Hungry Caterpillar. The children got to meet millipedes, giant African land snails, a tarantula, a cockroach, a tree frog and a corn snake. The children really enjoyed the experience and got to hold most of the animals individually. Peter from Zoo Lab told the story involving each animal and elaborating about each one so the children could learn some facts and get the most out of the experience.
This fitted in nicely with our topic at nursery for these classes at the moment as we have recently just had some caterpillars delivered so we can observe the process of them morphing into butterflies.
