Zoolab came to visit our Nursery

This morning Gillian from Zoolab came to visit the Morning Group.  She told us the story of the Zagaroo, starring Herman the hermit crab.  She brought along Gary, the Giant African Land Snail, Talulah the Tarantula and other beasts.  One of the things we learned today was that snails are born with their shells, but hermit crabs have to go and find their own one.

Gillian returned to visit the Afternoon Group with her beasts and told us the Zagaroo story.  Barry the Cockroach was even touched by Mrs Ross!  Cockroaches make a hissing sound to pretend to be a snake so bigger animals don’t eat them!  We got to touch the snake too.

  1. What an exciting day you have had learning about all these creatures! Mrs Ross was very brave too. I wonder what you will want to learn about next. Do you think the Gruffalo ever met a snake or a spider in the woods?

  2. Grace thoroughly enjoyed this experience. She has spoken about it a lot and has enjoyed looking at the photos tonight and sharing the interesting facts she remembered.
