Wild Animal Adventures

On Wednesday 29th June, Year 5 visited Wild Animal Adventures in Stockton-On-Tees. We had a fun packed day! We learned lots about the animals including the leopard gecko. When the leopard gecko is in danger it has the ability to 'drop' its tail to confuse the predator. It regrows its dropped tail in 90 days. We walked around the attraction where we saw snakes, baby piglets, meerkats, Racoons and tarantulas.

Animal Fun



Recently, Friday 10th June, some children from Years 3, 4 and 5 took [part in a school trip to London! We had lots of fun! We managed to cram lots of fun activities into two days including a West End Performance! It was a very early start on the Friday, even for the teachers. We met at school at 6:15am and were on our way to London by 6:30am. We were so excited that none of us slept the whole way there! We stopped for some lunch just outside of London at a service station. Then it was onto the London Eye! We had lots of fun looking out at the London sky line, we spotted Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Wembley!  After the London Eye we hopped back on the bus for some sight seeing before heading to our hotel in Kensington. Quick change of clothes before heading out for a lovely meal and a trip to the theatre. We watched Matilda and it was amazing! The following day we visited the Princess Dianna Memorial Fountain where we had a paddle! On our way to the fountain we saw Prince William And Princess Kate. They WAVED to us!  We hopped back onto the bus and headed for the Harry Potter Studios! We all loved looking at the sets, props and costumes from all 5 films. After that it was a quick stop at Frankie and Bennies before the long journey home! We arrived back at school at 11:15pm!

We have had a lovely time in London and would all do it again!
