Animal Fun at Whipsnade Zoo

12 March 2020

Year 1 boys thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Whipsnade Zoo this week. They learnt about fur, feathers and scales and worked hard to sort some animals into their animal groups. At the end of the session, they even had the opportunity to touch a live snake! A lovely walk was had around the zoo where the boys saw lions, tigers, cheetahs, bison and chimps. After seeing the new aquarium, they finished in the warmth of the butterfly house where some boys were lucky enough for a beautiful butterfly to land on them. All of Year 1 had a fantastic day!

“The largest single sex Prep School in the UK, The Beacon still has an impressively inclusive, family feel to it, with a focus on pastoral care and turning out well-rounded boys.”
