Year 4's Beautiful Brazil exhibition

In January, Year 4 were visited by Lillian from Zoolab with her rainforest creatures. They met Mr Slimy the Giant African Land Snail, Thelma the tarantula, Lucy the lizard, William and Kate the cockroaches, Trevor the corn snake and Ian the scorpion in a fun-packed morning. Over the next four weeks, the children studied the animals and their habitats as part of their learning about Brazil. They produced a beautiful exhibition of all their work, including vibrant art based on the work of artist Beatriz Milhazes and descriptive retellings of traditional folk tales as well as their own versions. Parents and carers were then invited into school to view their amazing work and meet the animals themselves! Check out the gallery below to see some of the parents overcoming their fears and getting up close and personal to some deadly creatures. A massive thank you to everyone who visited the exhibition and made the day such an enormous success!
