Year 1 Fieldtrip

Filed under: School,School trips — scotsabroad @ 4:42 pm

Our internet connection is awful at the moment due to the telephone wiring in our building.

Year 1 had a good day at Wadi Environmental Science Centre last Tuesday, exploring the animal habitats of, the Egyptian tortoise, ants, worms and fish. The centre is 50 km out of Cairo on the Alexandria Road but well worth the journey.

Lucas recounts:

Well, we went to see the tortoises. They liked shade. They live to 102. Our group leader was called Ibrahim. He was a really good fisher. He caught some tadpoles and snails. He was brave on the stepping-stones. When we were so quiet loads of fish came up. We saw an ant carrying a leaf. We made a little ant house. An ant has six legs. We looked at worms through one of these magnifying things. They don’t have legs and when they move they squeeze and stretch. I would give the trip 5 stars.



  1. Lucas it must be great being young and observing the world in such detail
