Year One Marwell Visit

Year 1 had a very exciting and interesting educational visit to Marwell Zoo. 

The children were very enthusiastic and keen to find out more about rainforests. When we went in the tropical world, the children noticed that it was a lot warmer inside than outside. We saw lots of plants with interesting shaped leaves and some even had fruits growing on them. There were also some geckos, tarantulas and dwarf crocodiles to see as well as many ants travelling in tubes from one area to another.

During the work shop in the Education Centre we saw and handled the skin of many different animals. The children had the opportunity to hold a hissing cockroach, but the high-light was probably seeing and holding a python.

Some children were very lucky to see a zoo keeper giving medicine to a tiger with a sore paw.

Thank you to all the adults who supported us on the visit and helped to make the day a success.
