RAINFOREST animals scurried their way into lessons at Seamer and Irton Primary School during a visit from Animals In Tuition.

Trainee teacher Richard Twiss said: “We’ve been doing a mini beasts topic, and found out Animals In Tuition have different animals and I thought it would be a fantastic experience for the children.

“It was a way for them to get to hold, see and feel the animals for themselves.”

With a majority classroom of boys, the school opted for a more adventurous selection of animals, which despite initial apprehension, proved the talk of the day.

Mr Twiss added: “We asked for the rainforest package, they had snakes, spiders, tarantulas, stick insects.

“The only one that scared them was the snake, but after that it was fantastic, they all loved it, the sugar gliders were there favourite.”
