Year 8 Zoo

Last week our Year 8 geographers explored Colchester Zoo.The pupils explained what they learnt on their visit: Isobella N: “I found it really interesting to see how the zoo had recreated the animals’ habitats and to see how they would have lived in the wild. I also really enjoyed going with my friends, as I felt it made the experience more enjoyable. I also really enjoyed the lunch, and how we were allowed to go off and get our own food. I really enjoyed learning about the wolves, and the small cute animals as well!”
