Hawthorn Class from Oak View Academy thoroughly enjoyed their class trip to Chester Zoo!
The visit began with a fantastic workshop where the class learned about the location of rainforests; explored lots of artefacts from rainforest life and discussed the issues surrounding deforestation.
The class then had the opportunity to see the animals in the zoo, on foot and on the monorail. All enjoyed the opportunity to study the behaviour of the animals as well as the information provided about their habitats and diet.
They then brought their experiences at the zoo into English lessons by studying a non-chronological report about elephants. They then continued their exploration of the rainforests in I.T as they learned about the set-up of powerpoint presentations for information about rainforest animals.
