Primrose House recently embarked on a captivating journey into the fascinating world of penguins, thanks to a special visit from Kirsty of The Deep in Hull. The residents were treated to an engaging talk that brought the wonders of these incredible birds to life, creating a memorable and educational experience for everyone.
The residents were in for a treat as a live cam was set up in the cinema room, providing an intimate view into the daily lives of the penguins at The Deep. The captivating scenes included penguins being fed and gracefully swimming in the water, offering a glimpse into their natural behaviours.
Kirsty's talk went beyond the screen, incorporating interactive elements to enhance the learning experience. Residents had the opportunity to examine a real penguin egg, feeling the texture and understanding more about the penguins' reproductive process. This hands-on approach added depth to the educational session.
The residents' enthusiasm for anything related to animals was evident during the activity. The penguin adventure sparked genuine interest and engagement, creating a positive atmosphere where residents could connect with the natural world and its fascinating inhabitants.
Residents shared their thoughts and appreciation for the penguin adventure, highlighting the impact of the visit on their well-being and enjoyment:
