Year 1 - Whipsnade Zoo 2018
Thursday 13th September 2018
Year One had an amazing day at the zoo visiting all the African animals we had previously been learning about in topic. We learned all about camouflage in our workshop where a lady discussed with us all about what camouflage means and why animals have to camouflage. There were different animal artefacts on four tables in the room and the children had to explore and investigate what animal the items belonged to. The children continued to think about what helped the animal to camouflage and what habitat they would live in to help them blend in with their surroundings. We found out that some animals camouflage to help them hunt their prey and some animals camouflage to help them hide from predators.
A special visitor also came out to see us… Cornelius the Corn Snake, who camouflages in corn fields, came in and let us stroke him.
