Colchester Zoo

Last week, Year 3 went on a very exciting trip to Colchester Zoo. We learned a lot about different creatures, particularly those that live in the rainforest.

The children enjoyed seeing the vast array of animals and the habitats that have been created for them, from the ant colony and the creepy-crawlies in the Discovery Centre…

It was a great day out. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who gave up their time to come with us!

Year 3 have been sharing their favourite books and characters with each other, talking about what makes a good book, and designing some of our own.
