Trip to Twycross Zoo

On Wednesday 26th February, Year 1 went on a trip to Twycross Zoo as part of our learning about animals in our 'Poles Apart' topic.

Exploring the zoo

We enjoyed walking around the zoo to see what animals we could spot. We particularly enjoyed watching the penguins swimming under water!


We went to a workshop and learnt about what animals eat and how their teeth help them to eat their food. We learnt that carnivores eat meat, herbivores eat plants, and omnivores eat both! We met a tortoise and a cockroach and had the chance to look at them up close and touch them. We also thought about food chains and had a go at putting the animals in the right order.
