On Tuesday 20th March Year 2 visited Hamerton Zoo Park near Huntingdon. This half term Year 2 have been studying “Families” and learning about different animal families.
During the visit the children took part in a workshop called ‘Fur, Feathers and Scales’, which helped them to learn about some of the different animal groups and how to recognise them, based on their features. They met an African Pygmy Hedgehog called Harry, a Conure Parrot called Alfie and a Corn Snake called Bo, which they were allowed to hold. They saw many exciting animals including Siberian tigers, cheetahs, Canadian lynx, hooded vultures, meerkats, a variety of lemurs, gibbons, several different owls and an anteater.
It was a fantastic and informative day!
Today our Year 3 children enjoyed a fantastic cross curricular day, learning all about Ancient Egypt.
D & T skills were put to good use making a shaduf and in History, the children used Drama to re-enact Tutankhamun’s last days.
The children were able to make some papyrus and an Egyptian Mummy. They also turned their own profile photo into an Egyptian King.
A fun morning was had by all!
