This year, Year 2 have been learning about habitats and we went on a trip to visit ‘The Living Rainforest’, a large indoor tropical rainforest located in Hampstead Norreys. We spent the day exploring this humid and abundant habitat with temperatures up to 34 degrees Celsius!
There were 700 different species of plants and animals to see including free roaming lizards, birds and butterflies (you had to be very careful to watch where you walked!). We saw monkeys, a crocodile, toucans, frogs and many more rainforest animals.
We also took part in a special tour all about animal adaptations. On this tour we learnt about the different layers of the rainforest and how different animals and plants are adapted to survive there.
We also saw many popular food plants such as bananas, coffee, cocoa, ginger and vanilla. It was a beautiful sunny day so at lunch time we enjoyed a picnic in the sun and enjoyed playing in the adventure playground! We had a fantastic day and would love to go back and explore the rainforest again!
