Hamerton Zoo Park Trip
Take a look at the special visitor we had in Orchard Class this week!
We had an amazing visit from Zoolab - we met "Buttercup" the corn snake, "Elvis" the Tarantula, "Honey" the Gecko and "Princess Katie" the rat. All of our children so brave and focused on the whole session.
Take a look at our brilliant bird paintings. We used teddies of the real bird to look carefully at the colours and patterns. Great work everyone!
