During the visit the children took part in a workshop called ‘Fur, Feathers and Scales’, which helped them to learn about some of the different animal groups and how to recognise them, based on their features.  They met an African Pygmy Hedgehog called Harry, a Conure Parrot called Alfie and a Corn Snake called Bo, which they were allowed to hold.  They saw many exciting animals including Siberian tigers, cheetahs, Canadian lynx, hooded vultures, meerkats, a variety of lemurs, gibbons, several different owls and an anteater.

It was a fantastic and informative day!

The purpose of the trip was for the children to work together to improve their team building skills and there was certainly plenty of opportunity for that!IMG_7315 IMG_7306


They split into groups; water was filtered, dens were built, fires were lit and they played team games.

They had to work together to complete tasks and once those challenges were met, the numbers for a secret code for a treasure chest were earned!

During their trip to Waddesdon Manor in December, the Reception Year
children spent some time making their own Christmas decoration and learning how to decorate and assemble it.

They also visited the house itself and had great fun finding the numbered
baubles in each room. They enjoyed looking at all the spectacularly
decorated rooms, particularly enjoying the bathroom with the seal in the
bath tub!

IMG_5971 IMG_5966 IMG_5965

In January 2018  Year 1 pupils enjoyed a very informative visit to St. Mary’s Church in Whaddon. They learned how Christians use the building for their faith, as well as developing their knowledge about local historical places. The children took part in a hunt for unusual artefacts, and then returned to observe, draw and colour their most interesting ‘finds.’ They represented MKPS so well that the churchwarden has already invited them back again!
