    Animal Encounters at John Clare!

    Today, we have had some unusual visitors at John Clare! The whole school took part in an Animal Encounters Workshop and interacted with various creatures, including: a snake, a meerkat, a chameleon, an owl and a tarantula. The children had a wonderful time finding out all about these extraordinary animals and their incredible features and adaptations.

    This special visit was made possible through a very kind donation to school made in memory of a loved-one.
