This week has seen some unusual visitors to our Congleton School!
As part of their science studies, pupils have had an opportunity to get up close and personal to reptiles such as snakes, tortoises, a giant centipede and even a bearded dragon. As well as learning about the animal habitats in their countries of origin, pupils have found out about their habits and food preferences. They have also been able to handle the reptiles in a controlled environment. This is all thanks to one of our teaching staff who has an interest in animals and has rescued many of these reptiles.
As well as their scientific aspect, these animal help to prompt discussions about how to care for them, thereby helping pupils with their English Speaking and Listening. They also support and help to overcome any anxieties about new and different things / different things.
The pupils have really responded well to this and enjoy the sessions with the animals.
