A CLOSE encounter with a collection of creatures welcomed children back to Cullingworth Village Primary School.

Youngsters in years one and two had a super start to their Amazing Animals topic thanks to a visit by the Into The Wild team.

Class teacher Mrs O'Hare said: “We are hoping that the visit will hook the children in to the topic, and work in class will develop their knowledge further.

“We will be exploring and learning about the habitats that animals live in.”
