Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

MONKEYING AROUND

This week our Year 6s enjoyed a walk on the wild side with a visit to historic London Zoo, nestling in beautiful Regent’s Park - a fitting setting for some science on the hoof!

 

As Miss Mizon said: ”It was a day of awe and wonder for our children! We lost count of the ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we made our way around. It just goes to prove, sometimes a trip out of school, with your peers and teachers, can put all that work in the classroom into context.” Even the sun smiled on us as we got up close and personal with many species we knew … and some not so familiar. The children had recently been studying how animals adapt to their environments and the trip was topped off with an illuminating talk on adaptations by one of the in-house staff. There was also feeding time at the zoo (our packed lunches) and then home.

Our children behaved impeccably and treated our fellow travellers and their new animal friends with lashings of respect.
