To consolidate out science learning about life cycles, Year 5 took a trip to Blackpool Zoo. The rain held off all day and we enjoyed talks on Sea Lions, Habitats and Big Bug Bonanza. Some brave children had the opportunity to hold a stick insect, cockroach and a giant snail. We also has a lesson in the Education Centre which focused on different life cycles of animals from around the world. Whilst we were walking around the zoo, the children had to investigate the gestation and incubation periods of the animals we saw.
