On Thursday 12th March Robins visited Living Rainforest near Newbury.
We have been learning about where tropical rainforests are located in the world and studying the plants and animals. We had time to explore as well as an amazing tour by the guide who taught us all about how plants and animals have adapted to live in the different layers of this unique environment. We saw waterproof leaves, camouflaged animals and some with the most amazing colours, either because of their diet or as a warning of danger. The children learned so many facts they could recall back at school and all of them commented on how hot and sweaty it was there! It really brought to life everything they have been learning and of course a quick run in the park at lunch time caused a great deal of excitement, where they made me very proud by being so caring and considerate of a mum and her little boy. She was so impressed she thanked us several times. What great ambassadors of our school they were!
