Trip to Chester Zoo

We were lucky enough this term to go on a trip to Chester Zoo where we were in a big rush all day to make sure we could see as many animals as possible!

We also had a mini lesson there where we got to feel a snake skin that was 10 ft long, an elephants tusk that can grow to 9 stone and a stuffed turtle that had been confiscated at an airport! Inside a glass box was a skull from a snake, the man told us that this snake was able to open up its jaw really wide as the bones are not connected like human jaws. With their stretchy skin, this meant that snakes are able to eat prey much larger than their own head. The boys were brilliantly behaved and we are proud of each and every one during the trip.
