CHILDREN at a St Ives school shared their science lessons with snakes, snails and millipedes to help them learn through first-hand experience.
A boa constrictor, corn snake, emperor scorpion, giant Indian stick insect, tree frog and a Madagascan hissing cockroach all visited Whitehall School on Thursday, September 27.
A total of four workshops featuring different animals took place at the school devised by Zoolab. Reception children took part in a wriggly road show, Year 1 and 2 pupils got to see some mini beasts, Year 3 and 4 youngsters learnt about food webs and Year 5 and 6 students saw some endangered animals.
Headteacher Sean Peace said: "I think first-hand experience will always be an important element of learning for children. Animals featured in the children's science lessons so that they could learn first-hand about different creatures and their habitats."
