Event - Year 5 at the Botanical Gardens

21 June 2018

On Thursday 21st June 2018, Year 5 visited the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham.

When we arrived, we had a talk from a lady called Ruth who talked to us about life in the Amazon Rainforest. Then we were able to look at and hold some animals such as millipedes, snakes and stick insects.

After this, we sat in the sunshine and had our lunch. While we were eating, a beautiful peacock came to visit us.

During the afternoon, Year 5 worked in groups to complete a maths trail around the different areas of the Botanical Gardens.
