On Wednesday, Year One went to Whipsnade Zoo for the day. Despite a bit of rain in the morning, we had a fantastic day! The children were so well behaved, extremely engaged and had some brilliant discussions about all the animals we saw. We saw Ring-tailed Lemurs; Chimpanzees; Brown Bears (who were play-fighting); Wolverines; Wallabies; Penguins (who showed off their superb swimming skills); Elephants; Giraffe (including a cheeky one who was trying to chew his way out of his enclosure); and more besides! The Whipsnade Zoo staff led a superb lesson in which the children were able to explore lots of animal artifacts and even came face to face with a real Python named Ebonizer! Well done Year One, I can’t wait to see all the learning that will be inspired by our visit!
