Year 5 pupils have recently been learning about the rainforest, and were excited to find out about what it is like to visit this amazing environment. Mrs Caller, one of the School librarians, shared her experience of visiting the Brazilian rainforest with the Venture Scouts when she was eighteen.

Mrs Caller shared her recollections by reading out a letter which she had sent home at the time of her trip, adding in lots of extra details as she described her adventures. She talked about tasting various fruits, tea made from stewed bark, ‘milk’ from a tree and water from a vine. The Year 5 pupils were enthralled as they heard about the different animals, birds and insects she had seen and heard, but less delighted when she told a story about discovering a tarantula on her friend’s leg!

The presentation was accompanied by photographs from Mrs Caller’s time in the rainforest, which helped to bring her tales to life for the girls.
