The trip linked in with our Project Work topic on ‘Our World’. The children visited both the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome. They explored the variety of plants and trees that grow in different areas of the world. The children looked at the ways in which the different plants and trees are adapted to suit their environment. They loved looking at the trunks of threes, how tall they grew, the size of their leaves and how they protected themselves against the elements. The children enjoyed smelling all of the brightly coloured flowers and they were particularly interested in the carnivorous plants, especially the Venus flytraps!
