Year 2 Trip to Colchester Zoo

Year 2 had a wonderful time at Colchester Zoo on Thursday 29th June.  There were so many willing parents who volunteered to join us to make our trip so successful.  The children were able to go in small groups and walk around the zoo to see the many animals.  We all then met up to listen to a fantastic talk about Habitats.  The children all listened beautifully and learnt so much.   They were able to touch different animal skins which helped them to learn which habitat they animals originally came from.   After a picnic lunch, year 2 then further explored the zoo.  The afternoon was finished off with an ice-cream and a quick play in one of the playgrounds.  A fabulous day was had by everyone!
