L5 London Zoo Visit

Thursday 25th April 2013

On Monday 22 April L5 went to London Zoo to explore one of their GCSE units: Adaptations. After arriving at the Zoo, the girls took some time to review the map and identify some key species they would like to go and see. Each group took a different route and began to explore the great variety of adaptations on show.

There are over 750 different species of animal at London Zoo and the girls did their best to see as many as they could.  The penguins were a real highlight of the day and were really trying their best to show off their streamlined bodies as they darted through the water. The two critically-endangered Sumatran tigers were also an amazing sight as the girls embarked on a journey through an Indonesian habitat, coming face-to-face with beautiful tigers through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

The Biology department also ran a photography competition for which the girls were tasked with taking close up shots of their favourite animals. We look forward to receiving these entries which will be displayed in the science centre.

During the day, L5 also spent some time with some experts, discovering some weird and wonderful adaptations as they investigated the physical and behavioural features that help animals survive. This included exploring how animals cope with extreme temperatures or defend themselves from predators.

The end of the day bought a much anticipated trip to the Zoo shop, where many girls looked for a cuddly version of their favourite animals.

We now look forward to getting back into the classroom and building on the knowledge they have gained from their first-hand experience of these cleverly adapted animals.
