Creepy Crawly staff INSET!

Post date: Mar 2, 2015 7:07:10 PM

We spent our Monday INSET session after school at Dartmoor Zoo, learning about important health an

d safety information and then how to handle some of the small animals and reptiles in the close encounters room so that we can take them out for the children. We held snakes, tortoises, cockroaches, stick insects and land snails amongst others - with some of us overcoming some initial fears (Miss Sparkes' face says it all!). Luckily for us the boa constrictor was having a 'pyjama day' and couldn't be taken out of the cage! We all fell in love with the very cute sugar glider!
