Birmingham Botanical Gardens Trip

On Wednesday 5th June, the whole school visited Birmingham Botanical Gardens to enrich their curriculum learning about rainforests.  During our visit, we worked in two groups, giving each group plenty of time to explore the various glasshouses and extensive grounds.  Each group also spent a 75 minute session participating in a learning workshop called 'Rainforest Fun' which involved handling a fascinating array of plants, plant products and live animals from various rainforests around the world.  Lola commented, 'Being here is so much better than a picture of a rainforest - it's like being in an actual rainforest where you can smell it and touch it!'  Here are a few of our favourite memories from the day...
