Trip to Knowsley Safari Park

We have had a great start to the year and finished our Survival topic with a trip to Knowsley Safari Park. During this trip we completed the Terrific Tiger Workshop. This workshop allowed us to discover the different features and adaptations tigers have to survive in the wild. The children were able to handle a range of artefacts and take part in fun activities, which consolidated their learning. A great end to our topic on Survival.
