'The Animal Experience' visits St Mary's

On the last day of the spring term we welcomed The Animal Experience to our school. Our students had a unique opportunity to learn about a wide variety of rare and endangered creatures within the safety of the classroom.

The wide selection of animals, including: a meerkat, monitor lizard, tarantulas, tree frogs, a chameleon and a flying display by an eagle owl, allowed students an experience that they will never forget. Students learnt about the individual animals, their natural environments, the unique adaptations that allow them to survive, and related topics such as environmental issues and biodiversity.

We were delighted that all Year 5 pupils from our neighbouring St Mary’s Junior School were able to join us for this fantastic experience.

Thank you to the Science Department for organising this wonderful experience.
