Linked to our unit author, Chris Van Allsburg, and his text Jumanji, we will be looking into the endangered species that are present within the story. As such, a trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park on the 25th October 2018 has been organised. Not only will this be a great opportunity for the children to meet some of these species up close and personal, it will be a great learning opportunity to find out more information as to why these poor animals are becoming endangered.
