EYFS - Chester Zoo

Date: 2nd Jul 2024 @ 6:59pm

What a fantastic day we had! Today we all got to go on a bus to Chester Zoo. We were so excited as we went over the bridge! We could see for miles. The children sang 'The Wheels on the Bus' as we drove to the zoo.

Once we got there, we couldn't wait to see some animals. We were so lucky to see a lion up close! We had a fantastic day and got to see lots of animals. Some were hidden and we had to look very carefully to see them.

We had an amazing day and our feet were very tired!
