Year 5 went to Eden to look at the exotic plants and to explore the Rainforest biome – this was really hot and you could tell what it was like to live in a rainforest.
We went into the Education Centre and saw the things that would be in the rainforest and how they could be used for a shelter and for tools.
We saw a plant that you could touch and it would close up.
There was a workshop called ‘Don’t Forget Your Leechsocks’ – it was run by Nick, who had been to the rainforest himself and showed us his leech bites.
The best bit of the day for Lauren was having an ice cream at the end of the day – it was fantastic!
