Class trip to Amazonia

We were very fortunate with the weather on our trip as you can see from the pictures.
When we arrived at Strathclyde country park we had some time to play with the children from room 1. We had a lovely time.

We ate our lunch in the sunshine.

Trip to Amazonia

Our class had a really fun day out when we visited the 'rainforest' in Amazonia as part of our class topic. We were shown around by Becky, who told us all about the different creatures. We got to see lots of interesting things like these beautiful butterflies.

We looked at the soldier ants. They are very strong and can carry things leaves that weigh twenty times more than them!

We especially liked the handling session where we were able to handle a snake, a large snail, a millipede and finally a turtle. We had to vote which animal we would most like to handle, a turtle or a tarantula. Mrs Ayres was very relieved when we voted for the turtle!!!


It was quite an experience handling some of the animals and not everyone wanted to touch them all but we were very brave.
