Wow! What a day we had today. We had a fantastic day, it was sunny but we kept hydrated and we found lots of shade where possible.
At first, we weren’t sure about the safari…many children had not experienced a safari before, however when we got going we began to enjoy it more when we saw more and more animals appear. We were so close to the lions, tigers, bears, wolves and monkeys, it was amazing!
The most hilarious part of our journey through the safari….the monkey going to the toilet on our wing mirror!
We then went for a classroom session where we were able to talk about animal habitats and the food that some of them eat. We enjoyed seeing the animal fur that the teacher had. At the end, she brought out an amazing snake called Savannah. The children were so quiet and got the chance to stroke it if they wanted to. Many children initially said no, but when they saw their friends being brave, they had a go!
After that, we went to desert springs to meet Dan who told us all about the lovely meerkats.
Finally, it was lunch time! The moment we had all been waiting for!
We were joined at lunchtime by lots of ducks – they were hungry too!
It was time for the walking safari and we enjoyed meeting some elephants, penguins, sea lions, lemurs, wallabies and even some goats. Mrs Guerin had a lemur on her shoulder and she didn’t even realise!
Here are some pictures of us enjoying the penguins!
Thank you so much to our wonderful parent helpers – we couldn’t have had such an amazing trip without your help!
Unfortunately, our special treat hadn’t frozen in time, so we can have them tomorrow!
Well done Matilda class, we had a great day, you behaved beautifully and we are all so proud of you!
Thank you also to Robinson class for joining us on our trip, we loved having you come with us!
