I have really enjoyed it. I do all different sorts of jobs that are hardworking, fun and independent. I find it really great working with children and animals. I am also learning more information about the animal habitats and learning how to work well with others, such as my work colleagues, A-level Students and young children from infant schools.
My favourite activity was when we showed the young children from Chapel End Infant School the animals such as snakes, fire salamanders, giant African land snails, stick insects and hissing cockroaches. We gave them lots of information about each animal’s habitat. After that we took the children out to Epping Forest to catch different types of invertebrates and store them in pots. They then had to see which of them had found the highest number of legs, by counting how many each animal had.
