Animal Escapes from Longleat Zoo!

Autumn Term 1

On Tuesday 10th September an animal escaped from Longleat Zoo. It was last sighted roaming the streets of Durrington before entering the school grounds. An article in the Salisbury Journal provided some vital facts for the children to look into. Badger Class became detectives as we scoured the grounds looking for clues. The children found fact cards, animal poo, half eaten fruit and hay scattered from one end of the school to the other. After gathering all the facts the children managed to work out the identity of the missing animal; an African elephant! Luckily Mrs Bingley had also been looking and had found CCTV images of the elephant in the school pirate ship. The elephant was safely returned to the Zoo.

Artists at Work

Autumn Term 1

Today Badgers welcomed a new member to the class. The children did a fantastic job of helping her settle in and proved to be outstanding ambassadors for the school. The children took part in an art session to welcome their new friend. They drew and then painted a portrait of themselves using water colours.
