10LSC Visit Belfast Zoo
In English, 10LSC have just finished their class novel, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom.’ It is about a boy called Michael who becomes shipwrecked on a desert island. He encounters wildlife such as Gibbons and Orang-utans and the book is about his motivation to survive against all odds with an unlikely ally he meets along the way.
To link in with the themes of the book we visited Belfast Zoo on Tuesday 19th April to learn more about wildlife under threat as well as conservation efforts to save animals from extinction. The class handled animals such as Pythons, Sahara hedgehogs and Brazilian tree frogs.
The sun was splitting the trees the entire day and we all made it to the top of the Zoo after an exhausting walk. Along the way we got to find out information about over forty animals including penguins, tigers, bears and otters.
