Zoo Visit Inspires Further Learning

Wednesday, 10 February 2016

Following their recent trip to Blackpool Zoo, where the children learned all about hot and cold habitats, children in Reception and Year 1 were inspired to find out more. On their return to school they explored information books about their favourite animals from the zoo.

The Reception classes discovered all about animals that come from cold places as part of their work on habitats. They played in their own ‘snow den’ and dressed up as Inuit.

The children also continued their work by exploring melting and freezing. They managed to rescue polar animals trapped in ice! The boys and girls also competed in an ice-cube melting race. These were both fun ways for them to explore the ideas from the topic.
