Year 1 visit the zoo
Our Trip to the Zoo written by Year 1 students Amelie Cox and Isabel Holdsworth
On Wednesday Year 1 went to the zoo. We went to learn about animals and habitats. First Kirsty (the Zoo Educator) talked to us about different types of birds. She taught us about pests and pals. Pals are native New Zealand animals and pests are the animals that eat them. Next Kirsty took us for a walk in the forest. She told us that bread can kill birds. She fed the Kereru peas and corn. We had morning tea. Then our helpers took us to see the otters, the tigers, the leopards and the cheaters. We all felt happy.
