Croeso i Blwyddyn 2 / Welcome to Year 2

Our current topic is : The Secret Life of the Zoo





Picture 1

As part of our 'Mantle of the Expert' work we have been busy trying to help the owner of a very badly run zoo. The animals are in poor health and the enclosures are run down, the owner of the zoo is passionate about her animals but just cannot look after them properly due to lack of staff and funds. Not only have we built our own zoo to accommodate her animals but we have also become animal experts in readiness to provide them with the correct environments . This has not been an easy task and we are currently in the process of creating a short film in order to persuade her that letting go of her zoo in order to save her animals would be the right and only thing to do.
