THERE were smiles all round when Reception pupils at King’s Ely Acremont visited Banham Zoo.

Having spent time in school researching wild animals and
their habitats, the children were amazed to see the animals in
real life during the trip on June 12th.

Pupils were very knowledgeable and were able to talk
about how the enclosures tried to mimic the animals’ natural
habitat. They spotted high branches with leaves for the giraffes
to feed on and plenty of trees for the monkeys to climb.

The meerkats and lemurs were particular favourites and it was
especially exciting walking through the lemur enclosure, where
they were free to roam amongst the visitors!
