Jodrell Bank trip

We had a fantastic time at Jodrell Bank today. Glorious sunshine and lots of interesting exhibits. We have done Solar Science experiments, visited a Planetarium, looked at an Orrery and found out lots about the Lovell telescope. IMG_1452 IMG_1454 IMG_1455 IMG_1460 IMG_1461 IMG_1463 IMG_1464 IMG_1466 IMG_1468 IMG_1472 IMG_1473 IMG_1474 IMG_1475 IMG_1476 IMG_1478 IMG_1479 IMG_1480 IMG_1482 IMG_1484 IMG_1485 IMG_1486 IMG_1488 IMG_1489 IMG_1491 IMG_1493 IMG_1495 IMG_1496 IMG_1497 IMG_1498 IMG_1499 IMG_1500 IMG_1503 IMG_1505 IMG_1509 IMG_1510 IMG_1513 IMG_1515 IMG_1518 IMG_1519 IMG_1451

Rainforest setting descriptions

This half term, we have been finding out lots about Brazil. We read these stories and inferred that the author’s messages were to stop cutting down trees, appreciate the beauty of the rainforest, and realise the importance of the wonderful things it has to offer.

We have had a go at writing our own setting descriptions. We hope that when you read them, you can appreciate the beauty and importance of the rainforest, and be moved to help save them.
