Cotswold Wildlife Park Trip 2024

As part of our Summer Term theme – What a Wonderful World – we visited Cotswold Wildlife Park to see some of the animals we have been learning about in our Science lessons and discover even more new facts!

It was a fantastic day out and all the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had a talk about the life cycles of certain animals, including giant tortoises, emus, wallabies and Colobus monkeys. The children found this very interesting and asked some brilliant questions to deepen their understanding.

We spent time exploring some of the larger animals at the park, including rhinoceroses, camels, lions and giraffes. It was fascinating to watch the very long tongues of the giraffes reaching up to eat the leaves from the trees. We also explored the reptile and invertebrate house, as well as looking at the fruit bats, penguins and otters.

The children were able to use their learning in our Science lessons to identify animals from different groups, such as mammals and reptiles and were fantastic at recognising which animals were herbivores, carnivores or herbivores by reading the information on the signs.

We were very proud of all the children for representing our school so brilliantly and using their amazing scientific brains all throughout the day.
