Reception and Year 1 Visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Reception and Year 1 had a wonderful day out at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Luckily, the weather was on our side for most of the day. We were greeted by our tour guide, Jessica, who gave a truly tremendous talk. She broadened the children’s knowledge of animals from a wide range of continents. This ‘hands on’ experience gave the children an opportunity to handle bearded dragons from Australia, corn snakes from South America, a lion’s claw from Africa and we even managed to pass round an enormous ostrich egg without dropping it! We stroked ferrets, patted wallabies and spotted tigers in the grasslands of the park. Feeding the squirrel monkeys and seeing the ring tailed lemurs was a highlight, especially as one was carrying a cute little baby! Some very sleepy passengers on the way home indicated that a busy day was had by all!
