The youngsters at the school, in Sussex Avenue, enjoyed a special visit from Animals UK who brought with them a python, tarantula, skunk, meerkat and tortoise.
Children got to handle them and learn interesting facts about each species.
A school spokeman said “The children were highly engaged during the visit from Animals UK.
“They were particularly brave to hold a tarantula and a snake. They were very inquisitive about the skunk and asked lots of questions about him.
“The meerkat was very popular and everyone enjoyed having a cuddle with him, although they were surprised to find out that male meerkats smell so much.
“It was a highly enjoyable experience for all staff and children.”
