We boarded the coach, and after the usual questions of 'Are we nearly there yet?' and 'When is it lunchtime?'....we were soon at the zoo.
We were all then free to explore the zoo in our groups before meeting up for a picnic lunch, and then back into the zoo for another hour or so before returning to school.
A brilliant time was had by all and we saw many of the Zoo's different animals- from Elephants and Lions to Otters and Tortoises. The adults all commented on how impeccably behaved the children were - in fact they showed other schools up! (older children too). So well done to all of them- especially as it was rather a warm and long day!
A big thank-you to all those parents who accompanied us - you were all a great help - this goes to the staff too!
Unfortunately we did have some children who were unable to make the trip due to being poorly- we do apologise and feel for them missing out - but they each have a goody bag waiting for them at school!
I think all the children (and adults!) will sleep well tonight!
Take a look at some photos from our day.....
