A Trip to see the Reindeer
The Reception class enjoyed a very special trip to see the reindeer at Garsons Garden Centre. We went first thing on Monday morning so it was nice and quiet. We learnt a lot about them from Katy who looks after them.
Reindeers have very thick coats to keep them warm. It's so thick that if they lay down in the snow then the snow doesn't melt - their fur keeps the warmth in. Their noses are long so that the air warms up before it reaches their lungs; also their long noses means they have a very good sense of smell and can smell their food deep under the snow.
