Class 5's Trip to Tropical World and Roundhay Park
This week, Class 5 visited Tropical World to learn about the tropical rainforest and compare it to our native woodland.
First, we visited Tropical World and spotted lots of interesting plants and animals some from the rainforest and others from the desert. The cute and inquisitive meerkats were a favourite!
After lunch we had a lesson in the native woodland in Roundhay Park. We identified the trees in the area using their leaves and talked about the biodiversity in our native woodland compared to that in a tropical rainforest.
Art and Design
These eye-catching posters, which include leaf and animal prints the children created, were inspired by the work of Fabiana Rodriguez, an American artist and activist. To learn more about her work visit Artist, Organizer & Social Justice Activist | Favianna Rodriguez
