As part of our Science learning this term, ZooLab will be visiting Year 6 on Friday 20th September. The children will be learning about how living things on Earth have changed over time. They will be introduced to the idea that characteristics are passed from parents to their offspring and they will begin to understand that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments. This visit will involve the showing and handling of live animals and all of the children will get the opportunity to handle some of the animals themselves.
Although we will encourage all of the children to join in with the activities it is important to note that no child will be forced to handle any animal that they don’t want to. ZooLab take health and safety very seriously and you can rest assured that all of the animals handled by your children are totally safe and unable to cause any harm. We will also have a strict hand washing policy that we will enforce at the end of the session.
We’re sure that your child will enjoy this experience and am sure that it will bring this term’s Science topic to life. We are looking for voluntary contributions of £7 to cover the costs of the event. You will be able to pay your contribution via the School Money system or you can send the money in an envelope to the school reception.
