Event - Zoolab

15 November 2018

As part of Vocations Week, we received a visit from a Zoolab ranger. She brought along many interesting animals for the children to learn about, touch and handle.

The children learnt a range of scientific concepts, such as, the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates, exoskeletons and diets for numerous animals.

We explored how the different and similar characteristics help us to group animals. The ranger also explained what her job involves to help us understand how we could help animals.
