Year 5 Visit Kew Gardens

This half term Year 5 are learning about the rainforest and for their launch they were very lucky to be taken to Kew Gardens this Tuesday. The sun was shining and it was a fabulous day. Over the course of the day the children ventured around the grounds of Kew Garden, were taken on a rainforest experience through the Princess of Wales Conservatory and had fun exploring the children’s garden. Throughout the rainforest experience the children walked through 10 different climate zones where they saw giant waterlilies, pineapples growing from the ground, the ‘chocolate nut’ tree, a huge variety of cacti, observed a poisonous dart frog up close and much more. The children’s garden included floor trampolines, climbing frames, slides, sand pits and raised walkways and all of the children thoroughly enjoyed running around and playing with their friends in the beautiful surroundings. Everybody had a lovely day and the Year 5 teachers are very proud of how well behaved the children were even with such a long journey. Well done Year 5 and we look forward to using what you learnt in our geography lessons over the next few weeks.
