Mr K loves to read about the facts and finds it very informative and engaging. Did you know that beavers’ teeth never stop growing? Beaver’s teeth are strong and they need to chew wood every day to stop their teeth getting too long! Also did you know what the tallest statue in the world is? It is the Spring Temple Buddha in China which was built on top of a Buddhist monastery and was reported to have used 1,000 tonnes of copper to build. That is impressive!
