Ash Class go to Shepreth Wildlife Park

Yesterday Ash Class visited Shepreth Wildlife Park, where they had a wonderful day.

The children were all very excited as we walked to Hitchin station to catch the train. 

Four very friendly railway staff helped us to get on and off the train and to cross the level crossing at Shepreth. After our short walk from the station to the park, we had our milk or water and biscuit to keep us going until lunchtime!

We then headed into the park and started our tour. As we walked round the park, we were very lucky as we got to see nearly all the animals. They included: red pandas, otters, lynx, lemurs, meerkats and Egyptian fruit bats. We also saw the park’s two new tigers; Ratna and Kelabu.

A talk about minibeasts was the highlight of our day as we learnt lots of interesting facts and we got to hold a stick insect called Woody, a cockroach, a giant land snail and a millipede!

Ash Class had a fantastic day although we were all exhausted by the time we got back to school especially the adults!
