Our pupils in Year 3 have been learning all about the rainforests of the world and how important they are as environments. Many plants and animals are only found in rainforests such as in the Amazon basin and they are increasingly being destroyed by human activity. Today Year 3 visited Birmingham Botanical Gardens to find out more about life in rainforests. They looked at some of the many plants that live there and even got up close to some of the animals. The weather was very apt, with showers throughout the day, however the children were great and learned lots during the visit. Many thanks to the parents who came along to help.
