Year 1 Visit The Zoo

16 October 2014

On Tuesday, the children in Year 1 had an exciting day at Hongqiao Zoo.

  • Year 1 at British International School Shanghai Puxi, go to Hongqiao Zoo

The sun was shining so we grabbed our packed lunches and made our way onto the buses. We wanted to see lots of different animals and find out about where in the world they come from.

First we went to the primate enclosures and saw baboons, mandrills, chimpanzees and a family of gorillas. The chimpanzees were very naughty and were fighting and playing with each other.

Then we saw the tall giraffes munching on leaves and the stripy zebras. We stopped for lunch in one of the parks; it was great to eat lunch outside and have a little picnic!

After lunch we set off again to see the fierce lions and the gentle pandas. We ended our tour with a visit to a large pond and were surprised to see the giant hippopotamus bathing in the murky waters. 

Later in the week we wrote detailed recounts in our Literacy lesson about all of the exciting things we saw at the zoo!

The children were extremely well behaved and were a credit to the school.  Thank you to all of our parent helpers who helped to make the day a huge success.
