The Bug Man

Monday 29 Jun 2015

On Thursday 18th June Isaac Newton Academy once again played host to the Bug Man. Students got a good chance to exercise their BRAVERY dispositions whilst learning about his fascinating and exotic creatures. With a retinue consisting of a millipede, tarantula, chameleon, iguana, snake and even a spiderman-like tree frog. There were plenty of creatures to learn about, touch and hold.

Whether it was enduring stick insects crawling in their hair, carrying a ferocious tarantula, observing the chameleon’s tongue or feeling the cold embrace of a rat snake the students proved that they were not going to let fear put them off learning. Even a few teachers had the chance to conquer their fears!

We would like to thank the year 7 students for their bravery and helping making this a positive and rewarding experience. We would also like to thank Martin the Bug Man for visiting us for the third year running and look forward to seeing what fantastic creatures he can bring along next year.
