Year 1 had a fantastic (and a bit of a wet) trip to Chessington!

Firstly we headed off to visit their zoo and saw lots of animals we had been looking at in our Kenya topic. We couldn't believe how close the lion was! 

We enjoyed a super workshop with Harriet who told us facts about all the animals. She let us touch an ostrich feather and even let us see and touch a real ostrich egg.

We felt like we were on a real safari as we headed onto the 'Zufari' ride... we climbed into the jeep and saw giraffes, zebras and buffalo. 

Towards  the end the day we went on 'The Room on the Broom' and 'The Gruffalo' ride. I think the Gruffalo ride was a huge highlight!
