On Thursday, Class River were lucky enough to go to Leaf Creative to learn about the different plants and trees that grow in the rainforest. Jonathan and his team had very kindly built a model rainforest out of the trees at the garden centre to show us the different layers (emergent, canopy, understory and forest floor).  They also told us lots of interesting facts and showed us lots of amazing plants, including plants that eat flies! We even got to experience what walking through a rainforest would be like with lots of trees towering above us.

Well done Class River for your super behaviour and interesting questions about the rainforest. Thank you again to all at Leaf Creative for putting on such a super session for us and for giving the children some goodie bags to take away!

Mrs Credland came to tell us all about her Gotland sheep and how she uses their wool to make different things.    carding the wool   Look how big the fleece is! What did it feel like? Continue Reading
