Year 1 at The British Wildlife Centre

Elmhurst School for Boys

14th March 2014

1P have been learning about nocturnal animals in Science. To reinforce their work, the boys enjoyed a trip to The British Wildlife Centre.

We were taken on a tour to see all the different British wild animals that are looked after there.

Read some comments from the boys:

"I love the bit when I saw the eagle owl. I liked it when it flapped its wings. It was amazing."  -Chukwuemeka

"I enjoyed when we saw the wildcats run so fast."  -Morgan

"An otter can float on the water with their tail and they have special eyelids so they can see."  -Om

"The hedgehog was sleeping in Izzy's arms."  -Reuben

"I like the hedgehog because they can roll in the ball."  -Nate

"I enjoyed when I held the deer horn and I enjoyed when the eagle owl flapped her wings." -Aral

"I like the fox because he looks fabulous." –Freddie

"I saw the owl show his wings. That was awesome. –Samanyu

I love the hedgehog because it has spikes." –Joshua

"I like when the rat went into the pole. They ate fruit and vegetables." –Ryan
