Mrs Chapman-Brown: May 2015
It amazes me how quickly the weeks are flying by! Next week will be the final week of the first half of the Summer Term!
Well, after our very busy visit to South Africa last week, this week we went to Knowsley Safari Park! One of the children did ask me, 'Are we REALLY going?' Yes, we REALLY went and we had a wonderful day!
When we arrived our first stop was the Meerkats! Base 2 were very excited to see them as we had taken Sunny along with us for the day. (He is the Meerkat in our story 'Meerkat Mail' They were very funny and they did'work together, play together and learn together.'
Next we saw the giraffes, elephants and tapirs. I have to say the giraffes are my favourite. Then we went to the Safari School and we learnt so many interesting facts. Did you know that the pattern on a zebra is completely unique? There is no other like it? We looked at a zebra's skull and jaw, an elephants huge tooth and touched a millipede, hissing cockroach and giant African snail! Truly amazing!!
After lunch we dashed over to the Sealion Show. Many of the children thought this was their favourite part of the day. Biffo and Roger were very funny and very entertaining.
At last it was time for the Safari and off we went!! A coach load of very exciting children. We certainly were.t disappointed as we saw lions, oryx, baboons, emus. antelope rhinos and ostrich — just to name a few.
We had a great time and there were a lot of sleepy heads on the way home!
Back at school we wrote postcards from Sunny telling his family all about the amazing day he had.
Thank you once again to all the parents who gave up their day to help us. We really couldn't do it without you.
Have a lovely weekend!
