Reception pupils go wild…!

At King’s St Alban’s the pupils (and the staff) are always ready for an adventure, with the Summer Term offering our Pre-Prep pupils lots of opportunities to get out and about. This week it was the turn of our Reception class, who had a fabulous trip to All Things Wild on Wednesday!

A regular venue for King’s St Alban’s school visits, All things Wild, located near Evesham, offers our pupils an enjoyable, interactive and educational experience which enhances their classroom based learning. It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to get extremely close to nature and the animals’ natural habitats.

The day started off with an exciting train ride around the Dino Park. Reception children were fascinated by the enormous dinosaurs and loved listening out for all the very loud noises they made! Jumping off the train, the pupils went for a walk, where we spotted lots of different animals. They were eager to learn an abundance of  facts about camels, goats, deer, emus, beavers and lots of other animals. Continuing the fun-packed, busy morning, the children then experienced an animal encounter.  They had the opportunity to hold armadillos, snakes and even a chinchilla. We were so proud of the children; they not only all held each of these animals, they asked lots of thoughtful questions and listened intently throughout the whole experience!

After a tasty packed lunch, the children loved exploring the park, playing in the sandpit, digging for dinosaur bones and playing in the park’s life sized helicopter! The children were all beautifully behaved and we are all so proud of them for the brilliant questions they asked and for being absolutely delightful all day. The minibus was very quiet on the way back to school – it is safe to say the children will have slept well that night!
