Te Roro o te rangi 1 Linda Grey

 

Hamilton Zoo

On the 21st of September 2017, our class Te Roro o Te Rangi 1 went on a trip to the Hamilton Zoo. We went there to learn about the different habitats and how the different animals live in their enclosures.

We were all split up into six groups and we all had a parent  helper in our groups. We all got a piece of paper, each one either had Reptiles, Mammals, Birds or Amphibians . Each person had a chance to see all the animals as well as doing their work, most groups finished all their set tasks.

My favorite animals were the tigers because they were peaceful. There was one female tiger in a cage while the two males were sleeping in their  play area. The other animal I liked was the White Rhinos because after 30-40 years ago the last baby Rhinos was born. Until this year, the baby rhino is so cute we don’t know if its a boy or a girl. But other than that the mother Rhino was really protective. There were also some bigger Rhinos , but there was only one male Rhino and the rest of them were females.

Our class had lots of fun at the Zoo because they got to see some really cool animals and we learnt lots about them just by reading the information next to their enclosures.

On behalf of our class Te Roro o Te Rangi 1 I would like to say thank you to all the parent helpers Cleve, Keely, Toni, Hikurangi, Dagmar, Whaea Amanda and our teacher Miss Grey for coming with us and making this day happen. Also a big thank you to Blake Toi, Mareva Tanga and William Higgins for getting this trip ready for our class  to learn about the different animal habitats and how they live.
