Hamilton Zoo

On Wednesday the 22nd of October the years 2, 3 and 4 went to the zoo.  It was so much fun.  I went with Gordon, Sharni, Skylar and Barry.

At the bird enclosure a parrot flew on my head and did a poo on my hat and on my t-shirt.

My favourite animals were the rhinos, the birds and the monkeys.  The rhino were sleeping.  We saw a weka and a stuffed kiwi, but we did not see the baby kea.

At the tiger enclosure we saw a blackbird on the wood in a nest and it had four blue eggs.

We got some ice blocks on the way home.  When we came back I asked Mr F “Where was the baby kea?” and he said “it is dead.”

I want to go back and see the animals and play on the playground again.

Going to the Zoo

Last Wednesday we went to the Hamilton Zoo.  I went with Tylan’s mum and Dallas and Tylan and Amethyst and Dominic.

We saw the chimpanzees.  We saw some rhino poo.  One rhino was eating some hay.  Rhinos can protect themselves with the horn on their nose.  That’s how they protect the babies from any danger.

We saw the guinea pigs.   We saw the kingfisher bird.  We saw a bird with a red forehead.  We saw a kea.  It was sitting on a tree branch.

At 2:15 we went back to school.  Then we went home.  I liked it at the zoo.  I liked the giraffes because they play in the mud.  They had mud on their hooves.

The Zoo

Yesterday, 22nd October, we went to the zoo.  My mum did transport and supervision.  She went with Keavy, Hine, and Blake.  We were learning about native birds.

When we got there we went straight to the birds.  Then we saw a fantail.  It was really small.  

Then we went to the monkeys. They were really funny.

Not so long after we went to a class to learn more about birds.  I learnt a lot in that class.

Then we had morning tea.  Then we looked at the rest of the animals that we hadn’t seen.

My favourite animal was a fantail because it was following me around and it kept looking at me.

Then I went to have lunch.  It was nice.  Then we went on the playground.

The we left to go back to school.

I had a fun day going to the zoo and being with my mum and the rest who went to the zoo.

At the Zoo

Yesterday we went to the zoo.  We saw lots of animals.  My favourites were, cheetahs, monkeys and the birds.

It was my first time to see a kingfisher.  It was singing through the trees.  It was a colourful looking bird. Two birds came close to me.

It was so much fun.  I wished it didn’t have to end.
