Year 2 visit Twycross zoo

Year 2 visit Twycross zoo

As part of their new topic ‘The Leopard’s Drum’ Year 2 enjoyed visiting Twycross zoo in Warwickshire.

The students viewed a range of animals including elephants, giraffes, leopards, gorillas, reptiles and penguins and learnt about their different food chains, habitats and countries of origin.

They were also lucky enough to see some newborn animals including a gorgeous baby gorilla. Deputy Head Mrs Nikki McDonald said ‘All of the students thoroughly enjoyed their day at the zoo. It was fantastic for them to be able to see so many different animals up close and to be able to link it to their topic and the work they have learning  in the classroom.’
