Auckland Zoo - Look at Room 2!

Team 1 at Pt England School visited Auckland Zoo yesterday.
We were there to look at the wonderful animals and practice being awesome Pt. Englanders outside of the school gates too!

We were delightfully exhausted but what a wonderful learning experience.
Team 1 will post some of the writing and artwork from this over the next little while.
We are encouraging the children to use rich descriptive language - wait and see. . .
