We start each half term with a trip related to the topic we are learning about, have a look at where we have been.

Autumn 1 and our first WOW trip to Blackpool Zoo to investigate skeletons, bones, vertebrate and invertebrates.

We had a very interesting workshop with a Zoo Keeper who introduced us to two different species of invertebrate, a hissing cockroach and a stick insect, we were allowed to hold them.  She also showed us a giraffe leg bone, which was nearly as tall as us, elephants teeth and even a whale tooth!

After our workshop we looked at other animals, recorded if they were vertebrates or not.  We also enjoyed the sea-lion and penguin talk.
