P6 Visit the Zoo

On Thursay 22nd June, P6 set off for their visit to Belfast Zoo.  The children have been studying the rainforest and researching some of the animals that live there, so we thought it was only right that we visit the zoo and see some of the rainforest up close and personal.  The children were able to identify rainforest animals, as we moved around the zoo and they also were able to
