Zoo Two

Filed under: School trips — scotsabroad @ 5:25 pm

Year 1 all went to the zoo yesterday and had a great time. We shared the site for a couple of hours with other schools, all of us eager to see as many animals as possible, as quickly as possible, while also getting to feed them.  Our children raced from one area to the next, many laden down with animal feed brought from home. The baboons welcomed our large bunch of ripe bananas and some children got the experience of feeding many of the animals such as zebra, camel, bears, elephant and crocodiles.


Here’s what Lucas says,

One of the snakes was taking off one of its layers of skin. I fed a baby monkey with a piece of banana. Two monkeys had a fight over a banana. The monkey that took the banana, peeled the banana and ate it and then threw the skin at the other monkey. I saw the hippos walking in the water. Faris and Alexa got to feed the crocodile. They gave it a piece of meat. I saw the elephant. You had to put the food in its nose and he would put his trunk into his mouth. I also got to feed the horses. We saw lions and rhinos. I don’t know if rhinos are endangered animals. They are animals that there are not many left. It was fabulous. I am holding my nose in the picture because the elephant’s breath was a bit stinky.



  1. Lucas you are becoming a very good story teller – your day trip sounded wonderful with so many animals to see – but you did not like the stink!!
    love to you. x

  2. What a lot of exciting things you described in your piece about a visit to the zoo. After reading it we could almost smell the elephant!.
    Did you draw any pictires of it afterwards?
