Howletts Zoo Trip

Yesterday Foundation and Year 1 began their ‘Creative Fortnight’ with a fantastic trip to Howletts Zoo!

Our topic is Africa so it was brilliant to see so many African animals.

We used a map to find our way around the zoo.

During the morning  we had a talk about Gorillas. Do you know what the difference between an ape and a monkey is?

After our talk we went to see the elephants, they were pulling grass out of the ground with their trunks. We also saw a baby elephant feeding from it’s mother.

Next we had lunch and played in the park. Sasha the Seahorse enjoyed eating her sandwiches too!

After lunch we saw some more animals and looked a John Aspinall’s grave (the founder of Howletts zoo).

Finally it was time to go home. We had an excellent time at the zoo and learnt a lot. This made us very tired!
