Following a slow start to the day due to traffic, Voyagers and Discoverers had a fantastic day at Blackpool Zoo beginning to explore our learning challenge this half term ‘Why are tigers not like humans?’
To name just a few…we saw the sea lions swimming, the penguins posing, the gorilla’s snoozing and the lions prowling. Not forgetting, Blackpool Zoo’s newest addition, a 5 day old zebra!
We also got the opportunity to hear from one of the zoo keepers, who taught us about 4 of the different animal groups – mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds! We will be using and extending our learning of these groups in the classroom.
A huge thank you to all the adults who volunteered to help and those who joined us today. We hope your enjoyed it as much as we did!
