On Wednesday, Year 5 visited the Botanical Gardens as part of their learning about the topic Rain forests. The class had a fantastic time in the taught session where they learnt about plants and animals from the rain forests. In these sessions the class had the opportunity to handle the animals: there was a stick insect, a chameleon and a corn snake. There was also some enormous seeds, such as the coconuts and the coco de mer. They were enormous! Year 5 then went exploring the different plants and birds. We saw the tropical, sub-tropical, Mediterranean and arid houses. We also met some beautiful peacocks, peahens, parakeets (budgies) and a very friendly macaw! We learnt a lot and had lots of fun!
