Pelicans at London Zoo!

We visited London Zoo today! We loved visiting lots of different animals including lions, penguins, giraffes and butterflies. We also had a workshop which focused on our topic… Rainforests! We discussed the different living things in the rainforest including monkeys, sloths and frogs! We also demonstrated our existing knowledge such as the four layers of the rainforest.
Then we went through the rainforest! We spotted fruit bats, an emperor tamarin, a titi monkey and three slots! We also measured the temperature to see how humid the Rainforests are around the world. We had binoculars to help us locate the animals.
We also learned about adaptations that some animals have such as sloths’ claws.
Before we left we were introduced to two hissing cockroaches! Their names were Charlie and Bob. We learned that they are not dangerous to us, but they do make hissing sounds to imitate a dangerous animal in the rainforest. Can you guess which animal they try to sound like? Some of us touched Charlie! We heard the tiny hiss.
What a great day- with fantastic weather too! Thank you to our parent helpers. What was your favourite animal?

    Looks like you all had a wonderful time at the zoo Pelicans! Which animals did you like the most? I hope there weren’t any spiders, they would have definitely scared Miss Duncan!!

    We had such a fantastic trip! Miss Agger is right… I was terrified of spiders! I also wasn’t expecting the cockroaches named Charlie and Bob!
