Whipsnade Zoo‎ visit

July 17th, 2014

Year 7 science classes at Whipsnade, Bedfordshire

On Friday 4th July, Year 7 travelled to Bedfordshire on a science visit to Whipsnade Zoo.

In recent lessons, the Year 7s have been studying nature and the visit to the zoo brought to life examples of how animals have evolved their physical and behavioural features to help them thrive in their habitat.  They also looked at the relationships in ecosystems and how organisms depend upon each other for survival, such as through food webs.

The zoo is home to many exotic animals and it was the first time for many of the Year 7s that they had seen such animals as tigers, rhinos and flamingos.

More photos from the day can be seen in our gallery.
