Thanks to the School Council, we were able to see and touch some interesting creatures. As you can see from our faces, we had an interesting (and sometimes scary) time.
It was a really good experience although it was scary when they brought out the tarantular and the big snake however when I stroked the long/tall snake it wasn't that bad it felt like stroking my leather jacket and it wasn't the tallest thing I have ever seen because I have seen you Mr Patterson. Also, the dragon was really cute it felt like stroking a spikey rock but cuter. Another thing, actually people were saying there was going to be a stick insect however I didn't see one. That's, when I saw the tarantular it looked really scary and it's good that Laura didn't get the tarantular out thank you for eating tarantular.
Your comment "thank you for eating tarantula" made me smile Lauren.
There were a lot of nervous looking Year 5's around than moment.
Maybe I should get a large spider or a snake (or perhaps both) as a class pet?
What do we all think?
wow that was so scary but it was fun and interesting to and it would help us work about animals.
Definetely NOT! Mr Patterson we already have enough pets on friday in the classroom!
That would be great i thunk we should get a small snake. It would be fun
i l;oved some of the animals i mostly liked the breded dragon the best .i dont really mind if i did not hold the spider i was a bit nervis. iam going to see a snake to night at my uncel house. Its a really big snake iam going to hold it and have it around me neke :)
I think the snake was more scared of the children!
