In assembly on Thursday children from Rising Reception to Year 2 met Carlos the Snake and Flame the Tarantula and a tribe of other amazing creepy crawlies from the Amazon thanks to Dave our Rainforest Explorer. We were all transfixed by his wonderful stories of living in the Amazon with his family and loved seeing all the animals, photos and fascinating artefacts. The children asked some very insightful questions.
Reception and their parents were then lucky enough to have a workshop with Dave who brought to life their class topic of the Rainforest. They loved trying on the different costumes and very bravely handling the animals. Dave painted their faces in the style of real tribal families and they then made their own Amazon jewellery.
