Year 5

On Monday 22nd May, Class 5 were thoroughly excited to visit The Yorkshire Wildlife Park to aid their understanding of habitats and life-cycles in science. The weather was fantastic as was the day. Upon arriving, we quickly disembarked, registered and entered the park. Immediately, we bumped into the meercat exhibit. The class were buzzing with excitement! Following on from this we saw lemurs having their breakfast, polar bears going for a walk around their enclosure as well as a range of large cats! After this, we walked further down and saw a group of giraffes, zebras and even rhinos.

Shortly after having out lunch in the sunshine, we headed to the learning rooms to expand our knowledge on habitats. During this, we had hands-on activities with different animals including Giant Madagascan Cockroaches - some chose not to hold these! Finally, we visited some more of the animal enclosures before finishing up and heading back to the coach. A great day was had by all.
