Today, we had a visit from Martin Rapley, the ‘Bug Man’

He started the day by teaching us a song about the parts of insects, including legs, abdomen, head, thorax, wings.

We then had a chance to look at and touch

  • a variety of stick insects, including a leaf insect and a spiky insect
  • a Madagascan tarantula
  • cockroaches that hiss
  • giant African millipedes

The children were fantastic, listening sensibly and ensuring they were handling the animals carefully.

Miss Mackay even conquered her fear by having a tarantula on her stomach then shoulder!
