Learning outside the classroom

On Tuesday, Year 5 went on a Science field trip to Colchester Zoo where the children had a very interesting minibeast classification workshop and exploration time of the zoo looking at different vertebrates and invertebrates. They were able to get up and close to some animals including hand feeding the giraffes and elephants. Some children handled a Giant African Land Snail in the Discovery Centre. The Chimps were really lively and the Meerkats were delightful at feeding time.

A lovely day had by all and really lucky with the weather!
