Year One visit Birdland!

Today we had a wonderful day visiting Birdland in Bourton-On-The-Water. As we arrived we were greeted with a “hello” from the parrot perching on the branch and enjoyed looking at the vast range of beautiful birds around the park. It was great to learn a little more about the diet and origin of the different birds and it definitely enhanced our learning of the different animal groups we have been learning about in school.

We were lucky enough to watch the penguins and flamingoes being fed and laughed at how noisy some of the birds were around the park! The King penguin spent a long time walking up and down peering at us and some of the other birds showed great interest in us too as we passed by each enclosure!

    

  

  

     

After lunch we had the opportunity to meet the park keeper where we got to stroke the tortoises, handle a snake and look closely at the bearded dragon lizard and tarantulas!

  

We finished the day by completing the Jurassic journey trail; searching for the different dinosaurs hidden around the woodland area  It was great fun hunting for the hidden code, digging for fossils in the discovery centre and having our efforts rewarded with a dinosaur badge!

          

A great day was had by all, many thanks to the parent helpers and to the staff at Birdland for making our day so enjoyable.
