Elm trip to Bristol Zoo Tuesday 11th June 2019

“I was very excited about going to the zoo because I was going to see some animals I had never seen before!” Eddie

“When we were at the zoo we were amazed with all of the animals. We had to follow Mrs Cross to a picnic spot but she kept going the wrong way!” Lola

“I held a hissing cockroach and felt two things and they were a snake and rat! The snake felt weird and the rat felt quite furry.” Will

“We went to a place called the Education centre where we learnt a lot about predators, prey, snakes and the zoo.” Evie

“When we saw the gorillas they were really cheeky.” Zac

“The dad gorilla was massive and the baby gorilla was just poking his dad’s head and then turning round and pretending it wasn’t him and that he didn’t even know about it.” Sophia

“I saw the lemurs and then we sang ‘I like to move it move it’ because one of the lemurs was called Julian.” Elias

“We saw a lion sleeping on the rock then all my group woke him up. He climbed into the bushes.” Isabel

“The Meercats were so cute because they were all huddled together like it was winter!” Robert

“The animal I found most funny was the Golden Tamarin, someone in my group tried to have a staring contest with him but the monkey just started back at him blankly. That was one of the most fun and fascinating days of my life!” Francesca
