Event - Year 3 and 4 at the Botanical Gardens

10 December 2014

On the 10th December Years 3 and 4 took a trip to the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham.

This trip was the finale to the children's topic on the Rainforest and they all had a wonderful day despite the cold outside!

Part of the day was spent looking at some of the animals that would live in the Rainforest, a chamelion being one of them. The children also looked at some of the foods and plants that would grow in the Rainforest, for example coffee, cocoa and sugar.

The children had the opportunity to spend time in the Tropical glass houses, where they could experience the heat and the humidity of a Rainforest.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the staff were not only complimentory about their behaviour but also about their knowledge and understanding of the Rainforest itself.
