Fun at Twycross Zoo with the Reception children.

The Reception children had a super day out at Twycross Zoo. We started our adventure by visiting the pets’ corner where we saw a selection of guinea pigs, tortoises and corn snakes.


We were then given a talk by Bex about animal differences and were introduced to the differences between insects, mammals and reptiles.

The children were able look at and touch the three different sorts of animals; Alan the Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, a Lionhead rabbit and Perth the Bearded Dragon Lizard. (See images above)

After lunch we looked at the different animals and enjoyed a cool walk along the waterways looking at the flamingos and cranes.

Finally, we had fun in the adventure playground before heading back.
