Colchester Zoo hosted its annual Special Senses day on Saturday 27th June. Helped along by glorious weather we all had a fantastic day.
Essex County Council's Specialist Teacher team returned again as sensory story tellers.
Throughout the day, in their own little sensory garden, they took children on a sensory adventure through the 'deep, dark wood' to meet the Gruffalo.
"There's no such thing as a Gruffalo!"
They also captivated children, young and old, with their touch and feel stories of 'Going on a Bear Hunt' and 'Dear Zoo'.
Elsewhere, building on their success from last year, Speech and Language Therapy students from the University of Essex hosted six stalls at various places around the zoo.
