Wonders of the wild
Pre-Prep girls learnt about the fascinating world of wildlife photography when professional wildlife photographer, Drew Burnett, visited the Department this term.
Drew took the girls through a presentation of his pictures and talked to them about his travels all over the globe and his quest to capture images of a whole host of animals in their natural habitats. He explained to the girls about where different species of animals live in the world and how he believes that to be a good wildlife photographer you have to first and foremost understand animals and what impacts their behaviour.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed looking at Drew’s pictures of Penguins living in the Falkland Islands, Giraffes on the plains of Zambia, Elephants in the Masai Mara in Kenya, Puffins in the Farne Islands of Northumberland and Iguanas in the Galapagos Islands.
Head of EYFS and Key Stage 1, Miss Holloway, said “It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Burnett to come and talk to the girls and for them to learn about his amazing career. One of the key aims of early years education is to enable children to gain an understanding of the world around them and enrichment opportunities such as this really help to bring the wider world to life in an interesting and exciting way.”Published: March 20 2017
