Monday, December 4, 2017

Pupils at Hull’s Ainthorpe Primary School, part of the David Ross Education Trust, visited an award-winning wildlife park to help gain a greater appreciation and understanding of animals.

Excited pupils from Years 1 and 2 visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, where they were able to observe the different animals and learn more about their behavior, features and natural habitats.

A pupil that attended the trip said: “This was my first ever visit to the zoo and I saw lots of animals that I have never seen before!”

Kate Ranner, Headteacher at Ainthorpe Primary School, said: “This has been an incredibly fun-filled experience for the children. The pupils were so excited to visit the wildlife park and have learnt so many fascinating facts during their visit.”


As part of the David Ross Education Trust, Ainthorpe Primary School aims to provide every student with a world-class education by focusing on delivering high standards of attainment and achievement through a broad and balanced curriculum.

Sharing ideas and a thirst for learning is an important part of a child’s education. Offering a range of rich and exciting learning environments to help raise aspiration and inspire pupils’ interests helps them to excel in their studies.

Kate Ranner added: “Opportunities like this visit encourages our pupils to gain interest in the world in which they live in, and absorb and embrace knowledge at every opportunity.”
