The Animal Experience
We had another fantastic response to our FREE animal experience day during October half term. All 240 spaces were fully booked within a couple of weeks. So on Thursday 25th October, Mitch & Hazel from The Animal Experience Zoo in Ely, Cambridgeshire brought a wonderful selection of their animals to our Learning Zone, where they put on six 45 minute sessions throughout the day. Along with a tarantula & a python, they also brought along a couple of adorable meerkats, a centipede and some lizards. Once again, Mitch & Hazel gave a really interesting talk on each of the animals during each session plus there was a chance for everyone to either hold or stroke the animals. Even those younger children who couldn’t touch or handle the animals were still able to get up very close to them. Hopefully the Animal Experience will return to us again in 2019 so keep a look out for information on our Facebook page.
