On Monday 4th March, year 4 went to Tropical World and Roundhay Park. We did a workshop in Roundhay Park, comparing the native woodland of the UK to the tropical rainforest. We identified different species of plants and trees by looking at the clues from the leaves and twigs around. We even made some woodland animal art using natural materials around us! We also went on a tour of Tropical World, exploring the variety and diversity of wildlife that exists there. We learnt about protecting the rainforests and environmental concerns surrounding the future of the rainforest. We also got to see lots of fantastic exotic animals; from piranhas to slow loris!
On Wednesday 13th February, we held a Carnival Afternoon. We all designed and made carnival masks, learnt some Samba dancing and learnt a Samba Groove on the Samba drums. We had a fantastic afternoon, finished off with a parade around the playground in our colourful outfits and masks. It was just a little chillier than it would be in Brazil!! Here are some pictures of 4P doing their Samba drumming workshop with Mrs Tilley.
