Nursery Trip to the Tropical Butterfly House: 06 and 07/ 07/ 2017

We all had a really lovely time on our nursery trip to The Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconary Centre near to Sheffield on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July. We had lots of sunshine on Thursday and Friday was still warm, but not quite as hot and sunny. It's been fantastic and we really enjoyed ourselves and did lots of fantastic learning.

Our bus driver was fantastic and we had great journey to the park.

We really enjoyed exploring the whole park and the butterfly house. We saw and learned about a wide variety of different animals.  Meercats, porcupines, lemurs and parrots, butterflies, lizards, snakes, frogs, tortoises, goats, chickens, ducks and peacocks, guinea pigs, chinchillas, otters and chipmunks. Some were furry and some had scales, some had feathers or prickles or even shells. We did some really great talking about the things that we saw, used our kind touching hands  to carefully touch the animals that we were allowed to and then remembered to wash our hands afterwards.

We also had fun and used our physical skills on the adventure playground. We did  lots of climbing, swinging and balancing and pedling the tractors and cars! We dug in the sand and squirted the water!...and some of us got very wet!

We were all very tired and hot on the way home...phew! but what a fantastic day!

It was lovely and it was great to see parents, carers and grandparents and also some younger and older siblings on our trip too. We were so proud of all the children who behaved beautifully and set an excellent example...what wonderful representatives for South Normanton Nursery School. We hope you all had lots of fun!

Many thanks to the wonderful staff at the park for all their help, to our lovely bus driver and to all the staff for their hard work.
