Year 1 and 2 visit Marwell Zoo
We saw perfect penguins, giant giraffes, sleepy snow leopards, terrific tigers and lots of cheeky monkeys when we visited Marwell Zoo.
We were lucky enough to have a very interesting talk from a zookeeper and learn all about giraffes too.
All the children were absolute super stars and loved their day at the zoo.
