Year 6 had a fantastic visit to Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens as part of their learning about Latin America and adaptation.
We were lucky enough to see a range of animals from South and Central America including: capybaras, alpacas and bush dogs. We learnt all about them and found out how they have been adapted to their environments.
We were then lucky enough to have the chance to handle some of the animals from the zoo – some very adorable rabbits and guinea pigs! Following this, we visited the Aquatic Centre to view a range of amphibians (including Nemo) and then before lunch we took part in the ‘Wallaby Walk’.
After a lovely lunch in the sun followed by a quick play in the park, we took part in awoodland walk. Here, we were looking for red squirrels in the trees and otters in the river! However, we weren’t lucky enough to spot any (maybe we weren’t quiet enough!)
Since our return, we have been writing informative recounts about our visit and non-chronological reports about some of the animals. Please come down to Year 6 or keep an eye on Twitter to see some of our fantastic writing!
