Yr 1 Zoo Trip

29th January 2018
As part of our learning about meerkats based around our Power of Reading book 'Meerkat Mail' the Year 1 children headed to the zoo to get a closer look at the characters from our story. First we were able to spend some time looking around the zoo and seeing which different creatures we could spot. Our favourites were the baby gorillas, the lions, the giant tortoises and of course the stars of the show were the adorable meerkats. We also took part in an educational workshop where we learnt about animal habitats and how creatures have adapted to survive in different environments. We also found out more about the mongoose family that Sunny visits in the book and where in the world they live!
