Twycross Zoo

On Friday 17th June Y2 went on an amazing trip to the zoo! The weather was beautiful – the sun shone all day long for us. We had a special lesson in the classroom first linked to our topic about rainforests. We made our own rainforest and put in the animals that live there.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see the tapirs as their enclosure is being moved. However, we did get to see all the different sorts of monkeys we have been learning about in our rainforest topic.

We also saw meerkats, penguins, tigers, rhinos, giraffes and many more animals!

We had a picnic under a shady tree at lunchtime which we really enjoyed.

In the afternoon we went on a Gruffalo hunt! It was amazing! We heard the story of the Gruffalo and even met some of the animals in it too.

We were very tired out on the coach home. Some of us even managed a sneaky little nap! What a wonderful day we had!
