We had a wonderful and magical day at the zoo. We fed the giraffes and penguins and went for a ride on 'The Santa Express Train'. We also had hot chocolate and cookies with Mrs Claus in her kitchen and then, best of all, we got to meet Father Christmas himself!

We went to Brockhole for a Science workshop run by Cumbria Wildlife Trust. The workshop was about habitats and was called 'Badger Needs a Home'. We explored the grounds, took part in different activities and performed in a puppet show. We had a wonderful day in the Spring sunshine.
Trip to Lakeland Maize Maze Farm
Here is what some of our children had to say about our trip.
We went to Lakeland Maize Farm. First my group went to the Go-Karts, the trampoline, the bouncy slide and the sand pit. Next we went to the soft play area. I went on the climbing wall. Then we went in the Hay Bale Maze. Then we had lunch. Afterwards we all went on the Tractor Ride. Also we made a picture frame. Last of all we met the pets. I held a Guinea Pig called Splodge.
When we got there the staff met us in the Play Area. We split into groups of nine. The group I was in went into the Soft Play Area first, whilst the other group played on the Go-Karts and the Bouncy Slide. After lunch we had a tractor ride. It was fun. After the tractor ride I got to stroke a chinchilla. My favourite thing was the Pet's Corner. It was fun.
The first thing that we did was to play in the soft play area. Next we went to play in the Hay Bale Maze. Then we had so much fun on the Go-Karts going really fast. I had a bounce on the trampoline and I buried myself in the sand. After lunch we went on a tractor ride. Then we went to meet the pets. I met a rabbit called William. He was really soft and black and white. I also held a guinea pig. We played games on the climbing wall and I won.
We held some rabbits and some gerbils. Then we went on a tractor ride and saw some cows. I played on the Go-Karts and the bouncy slide. We did some art and craft and made a picture frame.
We got to hold guinea pigs and I saw some tiny eggs. After lunch I won a race. I loved the tractor ride. Then we went in the soft play area. It was rainy but it didn't spoil our fun.
We took part in a Beebot workshop. A lady called Jo came into our class and each one of us had our own Beebot to use. We learned how to program the Beebot and we were able to follow challenges to navigate our Beebots around different floor maps. We had a fantastic time!
We have planted some daffodil bulbs to grow 'Pots of Care' to raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Our pencils have been very active as we have entered a short story writing competition. The winners of the competition will have their stories published by 'Young Writers'. We have been writing adventure stories about Space, Dinosaurs, Time Travel and Under the Sea. Good luck to everyone that entered!
