Year 6 Marwell Zoo

 

Year 6 This week, Year 6 had a brilliant time at Marwell Zoo. We saw a huge array of animals, including tigers, a snow leopard and a sloth - which Miss James was very glad about as they are her favourite animal! We took the opportunity to apply all of our learning about adaptation and evolution, taking part in a fantastic giraffe talk. Everyone (including the adults!) learnt a lot from the amazing keepers. For example, giraffes have 7 vertebrae in their necks, just like humans! The biggest difference however, is the size of the vertebrae. All of Year 6 represented Barnsbury brilliantly throughout the day - your teachers are very proud of you!
