Year 2 were lucky enough to visit Hamerton Zoo on Tuesday 20th June and we had a wonderful day enriching our science learning about living things and their habitats. The day started with a very drizzly coach journey but things soon brightened up when we arrived at the wildlife park. We were so excited to see many beautiful animals from Africa, which is the continent we have been focusing on in our geography lessons. We were amazed by the meerkats, zebras, lemurs and many different species of birds! There were also animals from different habitats and biomes, such as giant tortoises, otters, gibbons, tigers, bears and even giant anteaters! We loved looking at the maps and finding out the natural homes and habitats of each creature. In the reptile house, we saw lizards and snakes and compared their habitats to the mammals. During our adaptation workshop, we got up close and personal with baby tortoises, a taxidermy crocodile and Stevie the skunk, who we fell in love with! By the end of the day, we were sad to be leaving Hamerton but we are now filled with fantastic facts to help us with our science and English work back in the classroom. WOW! What an amazing experience we have had! Thank you, Hamerton!
