We are having so much fun learning about Amazing Animals!

We had a fantastic day at Knowsley Safari Park. On arrival we made our way to the Bee Room where we found out lots of information about animals in Africa. We looked at some animal skulls, touched a very large elephant tooth and got the chance to stroke a giant African land snail, a hissing cockroach and a millipede!

We then walked to see the meerkats, the giraffes and the elephants. It was truly amazing, we were able to climb up to a viewing platform to watch the giraffes close up as they were feeding! What an experience!

After lunch we went to the Sea lion Show. The children said 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!! A coach load of very excited children. We certainly weren't disappointed as we saw lions, oryx, baboons, emus, antelope, rhinos and ostrich — just to name a few.

We had a very quiet journey home as many of the children had a snooze!!

Thank you to the parents who accompanied us on the trip.

Back in school the next day we made a postcard and wrote a message to say what we enjoyed about our day at Knowsley.

We are getting very good in Base 1 at counting in 10's and 2's.

We enjoyed the lovely weather on Friday morning and we sat under a tree and read some animals stories. We were very lucky to have our first mystery reader for this half term on Friday morning too.

What a week!
