Chester Zoo Theatre Workshop, by Mrs McAlynn
Date: 13th Dec 2019 @ 10:04am
Year 3 had a brilliant afternoon working with The Denbigh Workshop as part of our Wildlife Connections work with Chester Zoo. We learnt about the different ways we can support wildlife conservation in our own communities and why native species, such as hedgehogs and bees, are under threat. Thomas in Y3AM said "I learnt that if you find a poorly hedgehog you can feed them some catfood and water, and keep them warm." Riley in Y3RW said "I learnt that the weeds in your garden are good for hedgehogs and bees."

This afternoon Mrs McAlynn's class worked with our visitor Louise to build a wormery in the Edible Playground. We played a treasure hunt game to learn about the things worms like to eat, and we worked together to make our own wormery which we nicknamed 'The Wotel!'. We have made information posters to show pupils how to look after the worms correctly.

We have loved learning more about wildlife each week with Alex from Chester Zoo. This week we learnt about how pollution and waste affects our environment, and the impact this has on our native wildlife. Did you know that a plastic bottle takes 450 years to break down? We played lots of different games to help us find out more facts.
