Wild Safari Adventure
West Midland Safari Park is home to some of the world's most beautiful and endangered animal species. It provided the perfect location for Form 2 to secure and extend their science knowledge on animal habitats which they have been studying this term.
A 4-mile Safari drive revealed an awe-inspiring view of some of the world’s greatest hunters. From magnificent and powerful tigers to the world’s fastest land mammal – the cheetah, and the king of the beasts – the African lion. The ‘African plains’ were home to a herd of southern white rhino, the elegant giraffes, majestic elephants and the unmistakable stripes of the zebras.
On foot they experienced the mayhem of the meerkat enclosure, visited the Land of Living Dinosaurs, Red Panda Retreat and Penguin Cove, and encountered prehistoric creatures from the Ice Age.
At the Safari Academy they enjoyed a discovery session on micro-habitats and learned what the perfect conditions were for a cockroach to thrive.
It was truly memorable and wild encounter.
