Independent Co-Educational Day School
Year 4 enjoyed a day out at The Living Rainforest as part of their current geography topic on rainforests. The main focus of their guided tour was on adaptation - how plants and animals have adapted to living in a rainforest environment. The pupils enjoyed viewing and learning more about a wide variety of animals such as snakes, spiders, armadillos, turtles, tortoises, monkeys, birds, giant stick insects, butterflies, poisonous dart frogs and iguanas.
The plants were amazing with their enormous leaves; all shapes, colours and sizes. The children learnt about carnivorous plants and were told about the importance of many plants grown in the rainforest for their medicinal benefits. A short break in the wet weather after lunch allowed the children to play in the park.
A fun and informative day was enjoyed by everyone.
