Bug Fest

25th June 2021
On Friday 25th June we welcomed Nick from Bugfest with his wonderful collection of bugs, including:
  • Bird eating spider
  • Tarantulas
  • Giant stick insects
  • Giant bat eating centipede
  • Giant hissing cockroach
  • Giant snail
  • Iron-clad beetles
  • Venom spitting assassin bug
  • Selection of scorpions
  • Praying mantis
All 3 classes spent 1 hour with Nick, listening with intent to his wonderful stories about the different bugs and asking lots of questions. The children held several of the 'safe' bugs and some adults had a go at holding the big spiders.
Children and staff all asked: Can we do this again next year?
Thank you to the PTA for funding this visit!
