On Friday, Room 3 went on a class trip to Wellington Zoo. We met with Brigette, a zoo educator, who talked to us about animal adaptations. We learnt interesting facts about the tuatara and how it survives in the wild.
No one is really sure how long tuatara live for, but the longest living one since records have been taken is 120 years old! We all got to touch a live tuatara and were surprised how smooth it felt.
We walked around the zoo in groups, exploring the different places and looking at the interesting animals. At the end of the day, we stopped off at Levin Adventure Park for a bit of a play.
What a great day out! Thanks so much to our wonderful parent helpers for providing transport.
