Amazing Day!

Bringing the magic of the tropical rainforest into our school – Dave and his daughter gave us the opportunity to marvel at giant insects and learn about their life cycle, admire beautiful necklaces and a blow pipe (used for hunting) which was handcrafted by an Amerindian tribe, whist learning about the lives of the indigenous peoples of the rainforest. We listened to their entertaining tales of travels to far off places and learnt about our own impact on these fragile environments. We had the opportunity to have our faces or arms painted like Amazonian tribal people, design our own jewellery, and even touch amazing animals such as a milk snake, a millipede and a bird eating spider!
