Botanical Gardens Trip!

4KJ had an excellent time at The Botanical Gardens and learnt so much. When we arrived at the gardens, our class went first for the teaching session. During this session, we had the opportunity to handle some rainforest resources, listen to and create rainforest music and also handle some rainforest animals. We were able to look, smell and touch resources such as rubber, cotton, cocoa butter, vanilla and cinnamon. Some of us liked the smell, whilst others didn't!

 

Our tribal chief (Harry S) then called on us to make music by saying "Sing for me, sing for me!" We used musical instruments which had been made from seeds and fruits from the rainforest.

 

At the end of our teaching session, we had the chance to meet and handle some of the rainforest animals including a stick insect, a snake and a Chameleon. At lunch time, we even had the opportunity to watch the Chameleon catch his food which was very fascinating!

 

After lunch, we then moved through the tropical house and into the sub-tropical houses. In here, we were able to feel what it is really like in the rainforest. We were so surprised at how hot it was- we were sweating! In the tropical house, we explored lots of different plants and resources that come from the rainforest. We worked hard to solve our quiz booklets too :) In the sub-tropical house, we learnt about plants from many years ago. In this room is was slightly cooler which we liked! We looked at more resources and plants in here too.

 

Later on, we went outside to explore the gardens and birds. We were able to see different types of birds such as Macaws and Parakeets. Some were friendly, whilst others were quite noisy and nearly deafened us with their loud squawks.

 

Thank you to The Botanical Gardens for a wonderful day. We learnt so much more interesting facts and we had such a lovely time. Well done everyone- you asked super questions, listened well and were very well mannered!
