Year 1 visit Colchester Zoo!

This Wednesday Year One went on an adventure to Colchester Zoo.

They excitedly explored the whole zoo taking in the sights of the sleepy sloths and creepy crawlies to the terrific tigers and enormous elephants.

The day started off searching for monkeys and holding a giant stick insect. We then trekked to the sea lions where the children marvelled in them swimming above and around them.

The children also had fun testing out their orangutan skills. Over the course of the day we had a train ride, saw the big cats, walked side by side with the colourful lorikeets and even got to feed the giant elephants of Africa.

All the staff and children in Year One had a great time and learnt a lot about the different species that they observed.
