On Thursday 2nd May, Year 4 Beam and Beech classes enjoyed a day trip to Whipsnade Zoo. The children were encouraged to reflect on the extent to which the zoo environment manages to re-create the natural habitats of animals such as rhinos, giraffes, hippos, tigers, lions and meerkats, and on factors which endanger some of these species.
Although we have only just started thinking about varied habitats like the Savannah, different types of forest, Grassland and Tundra, the children were already referring to new concepts and ideas in their discussions, which will continue in our Science lessons over the coming weeks.
A warm thank you to our fantastic parent helpers, who gave up their time to give us all a rich and enjoyable learning experience. The trip could not have happened without you!
