Science Day at Salfords Primary School
On Monday, Mrs Sims took five Year 4 and 5 children to a fabulous science day at Salfords Primary School. The day was run by Andrew Smith, a qualified teacher, arachnologist, writer, field collector (he spends a month abroad every year collecting tropical insects and spiders!) and natural history film director. Andrew brought with him numerous small animals (amphibians, reptiles, spiders and snakes) for the children to learn about. They discovered more about habitats, where animals originate from, life-cycles, food chains, evolution due to climate/environmental changes and so much more! The day was a huge amount of fun as well as being very educational and worthwhile. All of the children who attended were a real credit to Yattendon. They behaved brilliantly and learnt loads! Mrs Sims was very proud of them all!
