Year 1 Visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Braving the cold, snowy, wet and windy weather, Year 1, as part of their topic work on the Arctic, visited The Yorkshire Wildlife Park. They walked for miles using ‘power’ walking to keep warm. Not all of the animals wanted to venture out on such a cold day, but amongst the animals they did see were the giraffes, lions, lemurs and of course the star of the show, Victor the polar bear. The children were fascinated by him, but he did not seem very interested in them and just carried on chewing the grass! As well as visiting the different animal enclosures the children had a classroom session where they learnt about the polar bear’s habitat, fur and why it is an endangered species. Of course, we were very proud of our children’s exemplary behaviour. Well done, Year 1!
