As temperatures soared around the UK, Year 4 classes headed to Drusillas Park and zoo for a taste of nature from around the world. Inside an air-conditioned education centre, pupils were able to get up close and personal with a python, a desert hamster, a millipede and an African pygmy hedgehog. Pupils were surprised by how friendly the animals were.
Some pupils thought it would be lovely to swim with the penguins in their cool, blue pool, but they soon changed their minds when they noticed the smelly fish bits floating in there.
In the afternoon, pupils were able to take advantage of the rest of the fun park and a great time was had by all with children especially enjoying the squirting water.
