Sharing quality time with many monkeys
PUPILS at Gillingham Primary School got up to some serious monkeying around to round off their summer term.
The children from the speech and language base at the school have been learning about endangered species during the term.
To round off their topic they visited Monkey World near Wareham to get up close and personal with some of the endangered primates.
Pupils had welcomed an educational guide from the sanctuary to the school earlier in the term who showed them how to make feeding bottles.

They also learned how primates were threatened in many different ways.
A spokesman for the school said: "During their visit the children were given a personal guided tour.
"This was marvellous as they were able to learn and ask questions about the many different species of primate. The Lemur Walk was also a hot favourite.
"The children enjoyed a picnic within the large playground, taking full advantage of the wonderful play trail."
