A day at the zoo

Year 3 are visiting Chester Zoo today. How excited are we! (Exclamatory sentence!)

We pass the arguing chimpanzees as we head for the rainforest workshop....where Shah, Claire and Iona are leading us through an exploration of the plants and products of the rainforest..coffee, cacao and rubber plants and lots of creatures.
