The children listened to some interesting facts told by the very knowledgeable Tyler and they were able to touch and even hold most of the creatures.

They particularly enjoy their hot chocolate in Base Camp at the end of their session!    

On Wednesday 13th November, Year Six went to the Bromley Vue cinema to see Johnny English Strikes Again as preparation for our new class book in January, Stormbreaker by Antony Horowitz. We all had a thoroughly great morning and are looking forward to writing our own spy stories next year.
