The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip today to the National Botanic Gardens, a fantastic way to kick off our new topic – Rainforests. We learned all about the different layers of the rainforest and even had the opportunity to go into the woodland to investigate the living things that can be found at each layer. We then walked around the tropical rainforest glass house to look at some of the plants – it was very hot and humid! The children were able to watch butterflies flying freely around, which they loved! We also learned about deforestation and even saw the “ghost forest” – stumps of huge trees that had been cut down from the rainforest in Ghana. The children were so well behaved, what a lovely day. Diolch!
