As part of our Science learning this term, ZooLab will be visiting Year 6 on Friday 14th 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 are very lucky to have been able to fund this event from the profit of ice cream sales from last year so thank you to everyone who supported our ice cream stand.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Mrs Goggin in our school reception.
