Year 5 Virtual Amazing Animals Day
  • Junior School

  • Trips
  • Virtual SDC

Last week's highlight for Year 5 was definitely the Virtual Amazing Animals Day. Pupils travelled (virtually) across the world to learn about animals.

The first stop was Edinburgh Zoo, where the pupils did live animal sketching at feeding time. Then it was a hop over to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California where they peered through the glass into the shark lagoon and the tropical underwater caverns.

Pupils came dressed and ready for their day 'out' in their finest animal costumes and joined into all the activities, including the snack time challenge and furry form time, with so much enthusiasm.

The wonderful day 'out' was rounded off with a hilarious quiz. Let's just say if you ever get trapped in the wild and need to identify animals by the droppings they leave behind, you call on Year 5.
