Snakes and ladders at Woodpecker
Year 6 classes at Woodpecker welcomed some exotic animals into the school.
The pupils and staff welcomed crabs, a chinchilla, a terrapin, a bullfrog and a 7ft boa constrictor snake into the school.
Not only is this very educational for the Year 6s but it has been shown that being in contact with animals can reduce stress around exam time.
Wild Fangs is an educational animal encounters company, based in North London.
They specialise in delivering interactive, educational and entertaining encounters on the natural world using live animals.
Their key philosophy is ‘education through engagement’ – they believe that children learn better through first-hand experiences.
Their sessions are therefore designed to activate prior knowledge, promote excitement through discovery and expose new information.
