Year 2 Go Wild!

Term 4, 2021 Guess what? I went with my class on a bus trip to Altina Wildlife Park. I was amazed how many cool tricks the animals could do. I was so entertained! My favourite animal was the fluffy serval. I think they’re cute. I loved the scary maned wolves. I felt amazed seeing the animals that God had made! By Marley, 2S I was buzzing about like a black beetle! I was as jumpy as a jack rabbit because I was going to Altina Wildlife Park! First, when I got to school I was greeted by Zoe, Camilla and Jasmine. Isn’t it cold? I wish I brought my jacket! Breeet! Breeet! Miss Scriven’s whistle was so loud I thought I was going to be deaf! Come and line up! She handed out clipboards and pencils. The lumpy, bumpy road nearly drifted me to sleep on the bus. Finally we arrived at Altina Wildlife Park! I grabbed my hat (so did Jasmine who was seated next to me) and followed 2P off the bus. We were greeted by a young woman wearing a khaki uniform and sturdy boots. We hopped into a buggy and she drove us around the park. We saw the funniest monkeys you ever did see! My favourite animals were the white lions! They had a devastating roar! Overall, it was a super amazing action-packed excursion because I saw the funniest monkeys I’d ever seen! By Matilda, 2S Broom! Broom! We were on our way to Altina Wildlife Park! Year 2 and I were so cheerful! I couldn’t wait to get there! When we arrived, everybody on the bus was cheering with excitement! First, we saw the horses. We saw much more than that, but my favourite animal was the Capybara. Overall, it was an interesting day because I got to see animals that I’d never seen before! By Zoe, 2S Last Thursday, Year 2 went on an excursion to Altina Wildlife Park. First, we saw the scary lions. I felt excited when the tour guide put a treat up for the lion! The lion reached up and put its front claws on the fence. It blew my mind! We also saw some spotty giraffes! We saw every animal you could imagine! I loved the lions best because they roared so loud! I had an amazing day because I got to see the lions. By Sarah, 2S I couldn’t believe it! 2S and I got to go to Altina Wildlife Park! It took 2 hours to get to Altina. First, we saw so many animals but we saw a very cute Red Panda in its exhibit! The tour guide said to not tap on the glass or it would scare the animals, so we didn’t tap. Next, we saw the pretty peacocks. The peacocks could escape their enclosures but they always came back. Next we went inside a building to see the huge American alligators and magnificent crocodiles! I liked the baby crocodiles the best because they were super cute! Then we saw the meerkats – they were very cute! Overall, it was a magnificent day! I felt great because I got to see all the different animals! By Oliver, 2S
