CHARDSTOCK pupils meet Archie the armadillo
Pupils at St Andrew’s Primary School, Chardstock, have been learning about animals throughout the spring term. It all culminated when a selection of animals from Axe Valley Wildlife Park came to the school. A school spokesperson said: “The children were able to get up close and pet Percy the python, Henrietta the tortoise, Ronnie and Reggie the rats, Merry the ferret and Archie the armadillo. “The children were thoroughly engaged by the visit and it sparked lots of conversation.” Pupil Matthew said: “The snake sticks his tongue out to smell all the people” and his fellow pupil Oliver said: “I like stroking the rats. Their tails were all soft.” The spokesperson added: “Some of the older children drew pictures and had a go at writing the animal names. “A big thank you to Axe Valley Wildlife Park for a great visit and a special well done to all our children for their fantastic behaviour and enthusiasm.”
