Last night’s special visitor

Last night was an nice quiet night. There was lots of excitement about the day and most children were fast asleep by 10. We did have one special visitor, the TOOTH FAIRY! The children are just getting ready for our visit to Living Coasts.

The end of the first day

Here are some pictures of our adventures at Paignton Zoo. Arriving at the hotel. Lunch at the zoo. A giraffe… no, sorry, a rhino Walking through the zoo. The lemur bridge. Feeding time. Everyone is now in their pyjamas and they are definitely going to sleep well tonight.

First day at Paignton

We arrived safely and had our lunch. We walked around the zoo and a gorilla didn’t seem to like us. It threw a piece of bark at us and banged on a window. We’ve only just managed to blog but we’re leaving for the night walk. More pictures to follow.

Paignton Day One!

The 2014 Paignton Residential is well and truly underway! After a great lunch at the zoo, we had a lesson on Rainforests (including reasons why we shouldn’t eat Haribo or Pringles… eek!) We then looked around parts of the Zoo for inspiration for our evening art activity.
