Wow what an amazing time Class 2R had at the zoo. We spent a lot of time looking at the elephants and we think we spotted the elephant calf Indali who we had learnt about in class. We also saw the golden mantilla frog which is an endangered species, chimpanzees, orang-utans, crocodiles, lizards, snakes, camels, vultures, flamingos, penguins and many more. We even got the chance to see the giraffes being fed close up. We ended the day by having a sing a long on the coach journey home.
