March 2018

Year 2 had an amazing time at the safari park on Thursday 22nd March. The ride around the park allowed us to see a variety of different animals including a pack of wild African dogs who thoroughly entertained us as they chased each other in front of our coach. We were also lucky enough to see the large, powerful lion stroll proudly towards us and cross the road in front of us.

After the ride around the park, it was time for lunch under the canopies. It was a bit chilly and not your usual lunch as we were joined by hungry ducks who kept pinching the scraps off the floor. It caused a lot of excitement! Plus we saw Mrs Perry and her family too!

Before splitting up into our own classes, we all enjoyed the incredible sea lion show where we learned the difference between a sea lion as a seal! (There are 3 main differences - do you know them?).

We then had a walk through the twilight cave and the dinosaur area before looking at the meerkats and taking a walk through the lemur wood where we found that the inquisitive, friendly lemurs are not at all shy!

A lovely day was had by all with a few sleepers on the way back to school whilst others talked about their favourite parts of the day!
