'Lion Learners' Visit Westbourne

22 April 2016

Westbourne girls had an exciting start to the term with a visit from Lion Learners. Kirstan brought her many varied pets for the girls to meet and to learn about. This was a great opportunity for Reception girls to begin their termly topic of ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and for Kindergarten and Nursery girls to build confidence with new experiences.  

The girls learned many things including that Autumn, the Corn snake, only eats once a week, that Tia the Tarantula was very light and delicate and that they could stroke the hedgehog if they were really careful! Chicks, rabbits and cockroaches were also part of the experience.
