On Tuesday 7th June we all headed off to Edinburgh Zoo to learn more about Vertebrate animals. We arrived a little early so got to see the Penguins first. Then we went to the Education Centre to learn more about the animal groups. We got to hold a snake and a guinea pig! We also got to meet Dillon the Armadillo.
After that we went to see the pandas but ‘Sunshine’ was being very lazy!! We split off into our sampler groups for a tour round the zoo, it was a great day!
