Year 3 visit London Zoo

After their exciting visit to the London Zoo, the Year 3 pupils are bursting with tales of the cute penguins, roaring lions, and cheeky monkeys. Their curious minds are filled with newfound knowledge about reptiles and exotic birds. The experience has deepened their love for animals and ignited a lifelong passion for nature. The memories made at the zoo will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

Pupil testimonials:

  • Felix 3O “The Monkey Park was my favourite because they were so funny and energetic, climbing everywhere”.
