On June 1 and 2, Year 3 visited Khao Kheow Open Zoo for an action packed adventure!
To see all of our photographs, please visit our folder.
This was our first residential and for a few it was the first time they had spend a night away from a parent. Some were a little nervous as we left - but this feeling soon disappeared.
When we arrived we were greeted by our 4 amazing guides - they really looked after us throughout our trip. We started by walking around the open zoo.
After that, we were lucky enough to have a close encounter with the penguins. We fed them fish!
We also fed many other animals and listened to a few informative talks. Which animals can you spot?
We were sooooooo tired out! We then went to see where we were sleeping, and ate a delicious meal. After a short break we headed back to the zoo and departed on a night tour to see all of the nocturnal animals. We watched the tiger being fed, then we each fed one a piece of meat too!
After all the excitement many of us were ready to get showered and go to sleep. We slept in bunk beds - it was great! Some of us had never shared a room before. In the morning we couldn't stop talking about what an amazing time we were having. Jihoon even wanted to move to the Zoo!
We embarked on a trek with a very experienced guide. We learnt all about common plants grown in Thailand that could be used to cure medical issues. We were fascinated!
Interestingly, we were then taught how to make our own soap using natural ingredients.
The children were also excited to see animal skulls and discussed which teeth they could see.
We really did have a fantastic trip! So many memories made to be cherished.
Please view all of the photos in the folder and download as a keepsake. Our blog will be deleted over summer, so please do it as soon as possible.
