Chester Zoo visit

This half term we have been very lucky as staff from Chester Zoo have been in to work with the class. We have been thinking about and discussing our local environment and what we can do to maintain and support it, local wild life and what to recycle and where and the effects of not doing this. I have to say that the Chester Zoo staff have been amazing and we are looking forward to our visit their in a few weeks time.
