Predators come to meet Year 3!

Year 3 have enjoyed learning about 'Predators' this half term. 

On Wednesday 4th October we had a special visit from 'Animals in Hands.' The children were really excited to meet the animals and find out lots of exciting information about them. We met a raccoon,  sugar glider, praying mantis, snake, toad and a bearded dragon. 

Here are some photographs of us enjoying this wonderful experience.
