Year 2 Go On An African Adventure to Whipsnade Zoo

10 July 2017

Year 2 get to meet the African animals at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Year 2 were very lucky to visit the wonderful Whipsnade zoo. The children have been learning about Africa and this was a wonderful opportunity to see some African animals.

The children got to visit the butterfly house; where they were shocked by the wonderful colours that surrounded them. They then met the cheeky lemurs who seemed slightly shy!

All of the children participated in the ‘Camouflage and Colour’ workshop, which involved identifying and understanding camouflage from different habitats. This was followed by an opportunity to meet Reggie the friendly constrictor snake.

The majority of the day was spent in the African area of the zoo. Where children got to see lions, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and giraffes.

It was a magical day and has inspired the children for the upcoming play! Thank you to the parents who supported the children on their trip as without them the day would not have been possible.
