It is hard to believe the end of the session 2019/20 has arrived! It has certainly been unprecedented and we have all had to learn new skills, new ways of doing even every day tasks and adjust to a different way of living.

So here is a little virtual end of session WOW Wednesday that I hope you will all enjoy!

Zoo trip!

Hello all, please feel free to join us today as we go on a virtual trip to the zoo!
You should already have access to Zoo trip guide for today so feel free to join at your leisure and to add comments on this post as you work through our tour.

This post will be updated at the times for each stop, so we will begin at 9 a.m.
Alternatively, you may wish to follow along on Twitter so please check in via the Primary 2 class Twitter account.


It’s 9 a.m. so let’s get on the bus! Can you share some of your favourite music with us? Take 10 mins to have a sing and dance!



Before we set off, it costs money to enter the zoo. We are having a virtual tour which is free. We need to know where we are going! We are visiting: the pandas, penguins, the tigers and lions and the koalas. You will also get to visit some other animals today but do join us on our tour!
Here’s a link to the some maps for the zoo:

Have a look at the zoo’s full map. You can download a pdf or explore it online at the link:

  • Can you find out how much it costs for an adult or a child to enter the zoo?
  • Some of the class blogs have a challenge question or two about entering the zoo in their zoo guide, can you answer them?
  • Can you find some of our tour animals on the interactive map?
  • Can you name another animal on the map that we aren’t visiting as a class today?
  • Do you have your masks with you? If so, can you share them with us via Twitter or send in a photo?
