Year 3 had a lovely afternoon on Tuesday with a visit from Rascal the Meerkat with the zoo keepers from Exmoor Zoo. There were lots of links made to our book, Meerkat Mail that we are studying in English. We were told all about how meerkats have adapted to their environment and how they work together to survive in the wild. Some of Rascal’s friends came with him, a scorpion which is a meerkat’s prey and a snake that is a meerkat’s predator . The children had the opportunity to look at all the animals closely and have a little stroke with Rascal. It has brought our book to life and will inspire us in our writing.
