Tamar Class had a fantastic day at Newquay Zoo as part of their science topic “African animals”.
They identified a variety of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and learnt that an animals teeth and skulls vary depending on their diet. We got to look at a variety of different animal skulls and teeth too.
Tamar class also learned how to classify animals into groups depending on their characteristics; mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. They know that zebras, wildebeest (also know as the gnu) and lions are mammals because they have hair/fur and drink their mothers milk when they are young. Flamingos are birds because they have feathers, wings and lay eggs.
