As part of their science topic, Year 5 visited the rainforest this week; unfortunately not the Amazon jungle, but the Living Rainforest in Newbury, but the September heatwave certainly added to the tropical feel! We ‘oohed’ at the monkeys, ‘ahhed’ at the sloth, and ‘urghed’ at the hissing cockroaches, not to mention the monitor lizard, blue morpho butterflies, pitcher plants, poisonous dart frogs and chameleon. We learned about some amazing adaptations, like how the ‘black magic’ plant sheds water and how there is a species of turtle that can breathe through the skin on its neck! Now we’re in the process of turning all our newly acquired knowledge into a fantastic rainforest-themed wall display – watch this space!
