I got rather hot yesterday when I visited the rainforest with Year 5; bears aren’t adapted to living in the rainforest which is funny because that’s just what the children we’re learning about: adaptations to life in a rainforest. I found out that many plants have huge leaves so they can get enough sunlight and that toucans have two toes pointing forwards and two pointing backwards so they can grip the branches better.  I was a little bit scared by the tarantula but the chameleon was very funny – I think I’ll try to swivel my eyes about – oh ow! Better not it just gives me a headache!  Anyway I’ve found that I’m actually perfectly adapted to life at Lyndhurst School.
