On Tuesday 8th May, we all went to Whipsnade Zoo. We enjoyed our coach ride there and then it was time to meet the animals. We saw the lemurs having breakfast, the bears having a swim in their pool and the tigers having a sleep! We tried to waddle like a penguin and we stood on one leg like the flamingos!
At lunchtime, we stopped for our picnic and Mrs Staniforth read us the story of Dear Zoo. We watched the parrots flying in the bird show and then visited the very tall giraffes. Our last stop was at the Butterfly House, where some of the butterflies thought we were flowers and landed on us!
The it was time for a very sleepy Early Years to get back on the coach and head back to school.
We had a wonderful day at the zoo and we are going to use everything that we learnt to create our own animal stories.
