During Lent term, our Year 4 pupils took a trip to Blackpool Zoo to support and enhance their learning in their Science topic: Animals including Humans.
The zoo really gave sustenance to the dental topic that they had also been learning, giving the pupils an opportunity to showcase their knowledge from their lessons. It was a proud moment for everyone, when the pupils were congratulated upon their knowledge in this subject.
During the visit, the pupils had a chance to look at a variety of animal bones including: an elephant molar, a shark’s jaw and a tiger’s skull; they also had an opportunity to hold a live hissing cockroach.
Throughout the course of the snowy day, the pupils were able to roam the near empty zoo. It was a wonderful experience to hear the sounds of the different animals from all over the zoo, and to get up close and personal with some big cats!
