Year 1 at Kirkley Hall

Year 1 had a great day at Kirkley Hall Zoological gardens last week.  They got to stroke rabbits and guinea pigs in an animal handling session and saw animals like bush dogs, lemurs and wallabies on the tour of the zoo.  Meerkats were definitely the most popular animals!  We found out lots of interesting facts, like how reindeers lose their antlers each year.  They also took part in a woodland walk, looking for animals like red squirrels.  Unfortunately they didn’t come out to say hello!
