10LSC Zoo Trip
In English, 10LSC have just finished their class novel, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom.’ It is about a boy who gets shipwrecked on a desert island. He encounters wildlife such as gibbons and orang-utans and the book is about survival.
To link in with the themes of the book we visited Belfast Zoo on Monday 25th June to learn more about wildlife under threat as well as conservation efforts to save animals from extinction. The class handled animals such as pythons, giant snails and stick insects.
The weather was terrific and we all made it to the top of the zoo after an exhausting walk. Along the way we found out information about over forty animals including elephants, gorillas, tigers, kangaroos and zebras.
