Welcome to Reception

Trip to the Zoo

The children are all very excited for their trip to the Exotic Zoo tomorrow! We have looked at the places where we might go and the animals that we might see. We have also checked the weather and thought about what we will need. Here is our list:

  • School uniform
  • Coat
  • Water bottle
  • Packed lunch (unless ordered from the school)
  • Sun hat
  • Sun cream

The children will not need to bring any money as we will not be visiting the gift shop.
