Class 3 have been reading Meerkat Mail and are writing their own stories based on the book, which centres around a meerkat called Sunny.

We were all excited to have a visit by a real life Sunny thanks to Steve at Exmoor Zoo’s education department. Steve brought along several animals from around the world and explained their various adaptations to their habitat as well as their diet.

A scary black scorpion turned out to be Sunny’s favourite food and it also had the remarkable adaptation of sensing ultra violet light through its bottom!

Everyone agreed that Sunny stole the show with his cheeky manner and impressive acrobatics.
