A visit from Jungle Jo

A visit from Jungle Jo

Yesterday the wonderful Jungle Joe visited Hendon Prep and introduced the children from Reception to Year 4 to some of her fabulous animal friends.

Jo brought along with her a cockroach, a millipede, 2 Chinese mossy frogs (called Noodle and Rice!), a blue tongued skink, a tarantula and a snake.

The children learnt all about the different animals’ senses; including the fact that millipedes have simple eyes and are practically blind and that snakes cannot hear but sense vibrations through their scales.

Jo also talked to the children about how and what the various animals eat and how they live in their natural habitat.

All of the children got a chance to handle the animals and some even overcame their fears to do so.
