MEADOWPARK MATTERS NEWSLETTER 06.09.19

Zoolab were with us this morning and informed and delighted with the following animals: Sally the giant African land snail, Gary the fat tailed gecko, Steve the scorpion, Sophie the corn snake, and Raquel the white rat. Almost without exception Meadowpark pupils love animals of all shapes and sizes and as well as a natural curiosity to find out more about habitat and habits, our pupils are extraordinarily empathetic and were keen to understand more about these fabulous creatures. Being able now to refer to this hands on experience will assist in further study in particular SQA Personal Achievement Awards Caring for a Pet. The experience will also inform literacy by reading and writing about the animals and numeracy when we consider temperatures of natural habitats, type and quantity of food and family groups. We have already booked for a repeat visit from Zoolab next September. Read more here...
