Rainforest Roadshow - posted 2nd Jul
Students at Gateacre School had the opportunity to experience a Rainforest Roadshow over 2 days to launch the opening of their new Biodome. Lyndsay Hunter from Animals Take Over brought a variety of insects, mammals and reptiles for students to meet. Species included, Wilfred the Royal Python, Fredo the Tree Frog, Sid the Flat Rock Scorpion, Sid the Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, Milly the Giant African Millipede and the star of the show, Joey the Sugar Glider. Alastair Smith, Head of Geography said “The Rainforest Roadshow is a joint venture between Geography and Science; two subjects that are intrinsically intertwined in their curriculum, where students learn about global biomes, animal adaptation and threats facing tropical rainforests. The roadshow helps reinforce the learning that has taken place over the last few months in class”.
