Year One trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park was on a freezing day but well worth it.  The children met tigers eating their lunch and giraffes sniffing each other's bottoms and also got to find out lots about stranger creatures like hissing cockroaches.  Their writing after their visit was amazing and full of lots of fantastic description of the animals they met.

Year Two had a monster fashion show with the amazing monsters they had made for homework.  Than you to parents for attending and look out for some Supermodels coming from Bradford in years to come!
