Today we had a special visitor at school; Ranger Paul and his collection of insects, arachnids and snakes. Ranger Paul set up camp in Morpurgo class and our Year 1 and Year 2 classes came to visit him throughout the day.

Children learnt lots of interesting facts about his rainforest creatures including; how they are adapted to their environment, how they avoid predators, and how they catch their prey.

One particular favourite was the Orchid Mantis which disguises itself as a flower and then pounces on bees when they arrive looking for nectar.

At the end of the day Ranger Paul hosted an assembly for the Foundation Stage children so they could enjoy meeting some of his friends.
