Caterpillar Music special visit

After a busy few weeks of visiting schools across the Island, Tara and her team had time for just one more visit to the Caterpillar Music Group in Sandown.

Caterpillar Music is a fun and interactive way to encourage parents and their children to learn and communicate through music. With different themes, instruments and use of puppets it is enjoyed by many parents and children of all ages across the UK.

We were very kindly invited by the very enthusiastic and dedicated Maggie, event organiser on the Island, to join Caterpillar Music with some of our friends from the Park.
This week the theme was 'locomotion'. Therefore, in order to learn about the different ways in which various animals move, who better to demonstrate than our bouncing friend Mr Fluffy!

As you can see, Mr Fluffy is quite used to lots of attention and it seems he found himself some comfort amongst his young admirers....

It's a shame that our Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches weren't quite so well received!

And as for Priscilla, our Bearded Dragon, well the only thing she is concerned about is whether I have snapped her best side!

Although Priscilla and Fluffy didn't really feel like joining in on the music, Caterpillar Music is obviously very much enjoyed by young Children and Parents and we were privileged to be involved in this unique way of learning.

Priscilla, Mr Fluffy, Colin, Cassandra and of course Tara, will be taking a well deserved break from our Educational School Visits before the Park re-opens for the new season on Saturday 2nd April.

However, we will be taking bookings for Educational School Visits again at the end of the season, and if you would like any further information about our Educational activities please contact Tara directly on

Meanwhile we look forward to seeing you in the near future!
