Children at Reynolds Academy brought their classroom learning to life with a trip to the Jungle Zoo in Cleethorpes.

Year 1 Teacher Abbie Smith explained: "As part of our theme 'Our Living World', the children in Year 1 learnt about different types of animals and what makes them special. We learnt about a range of animals, from amphibians such as frogs, to mammals like the killer whale.

"To see some of the amazing animals we had learnt about, we took a trip to the Jungle Zoo to speak to the experts. The children got up close to animals such as the bearded dragon and the millipede. They really enjoyed it."
