Just before the end of half term and to support the work they have been doing in the classroom, Years 3 and 4 journeyed to Berkshire to spend the day learning about the plants and animals that reside within the natural Rainforests. During their experience girls had the opportunity to get up close and personal with many different species of plants and animals.
Despite covering just 6% of the planet’s land surface, rainforests are believed to contain around half of all the plants and animals on Earth. The girls learned how the plants & animals have adapted to life within a rainforest.
Rainforests play a crucial role in maintaining the planet's ecological balance. They are often referred to as the "lungs of the Earth" because they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen through photosynthesis. They also help regulate the Earth's climate and provide habitats for countless species.
Pupils had a really exciting opportunity to learn about the fascinating world of rainforests and the importance of conservation. We are sure this hands-on experience will leave a lasting impression and inspire them to protect our planet's natural wonders.
