Year 6 Trip to the Safari Zoo

This week, the Year 6 children visited the Safari Zoo near Badaling. Thankfully the traffic all appeared to be travelling in the opposite direction so we arrived, picnic lunch in hand, by 10.30am. This meant we had as much time as possible to discover all the different parts of the zoo. The impressive sight of huge stone elephants was just the beginning! The zoo visit was introduced to help the children understand their science topic they have been doing on Environment and Adaptation. The range of animals at the zoo helped the children identify how different ones have adapted to suit their environments.

From the giraffe with their long necks to reach high branches on acacia trees, elephants with their long trunks and leathery feet to drink, eat and walk on rough ground, to the long tailed monkeys using it as an extra arm to swing through the trees.

The children had a fantastic day and were, as always exemplary in their behaviour being complimented by Zoo staff and members of the public alike. For interested parents it is well worth a visit!
