Axe Valley WIldlife Park

Class one had a fantastic day at Axe Valley Wildlife Park. Luckily the weather was great and we had some lovely autumn sunshine. We started the day in the education tent where the children had the opportunity to get up close to some wonderful creatures such as an armadillo; a giant African millipede; a snake; a giant African snail and many more. All of the children were offered the chance to hold/touch the animals whilst hearing some interesting facts about them, including that in the times of the dinosaurs, snakes used to have legs! Following this, the children had another unique opportunity to feed the meerkats. After lunch, the children had plenty of time to explore the park's animals, of which many are featured in our current storybook 'Meerkat Mail' and our last key text 'What do you do with a tail like this?'. They particularly enjoyed seeing some of the birds, cats and primates. All of the children returned back safely but very tired. A great day was had by all.
