Year 5 Visit Tropical World
 
         
 

As part of our work on Rainforests of the World,

we took a trip to Tropical World in Leeds.

We studied how different plants and animals

have adapted to their habitats.

Take a look at some of the things we saw . . .

 
         
 
 
 
         
 
Camouflaged caterpillars . . .
. . . and their chrysalis'.
 
         
 
 
 
         
 
Beautiful butterflies . . .
. . . fearsome fish . . .
 
         
 
 
 
         
 
and lazy, lounging lizards.
 
         
 
 
 
         
 
Fabulous flowers . . .
 
         
 
 
 
         
 
and fascinating foliage.
 
         
 
 
 
         
 
An army of ants on the march . . .
 
. . . and tired terrapins.
 
         
 
 

And everyones favorite - a Mound of Meerkats.

(The Meerkats are the ones in the foreground!)

 
         
 
After all that Tropical heat it was time to take a break in the playground and cool off with delicious ice cream!
