On Monday, Year 5 had a very exciting trip to the Eden Project in Cornwall. At the start of the day, we were welcomed by the Eden Project staff and learnt all about how the Eden Project was built – the children were fascinated to see all the exciting photos from the project.

Throughout the day the children were split into groups and explored different parts of the Eden project. They loved exploring the Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes and observed different ecosystems and climate zones. The highlight for many of the children was the rope bridge canopy walk above the trees as they could see many areas of the biome that they had previously explored.

Ellie said - ‘’I was surprised to see a waterfall inside the biome – it was so refreshing!’’

Inside the Mediterranean Biome there were lots of herbs and scents. Whilst looking around, we spotted lots of different types of plants and learnt more about where palm oil and sugar comes from.

Max said – ‘’I loved all of the different smells inside the biomes.’’

Whilst exploring the grounds, the children were particularly surprised with just how many different gardens and trails there were to explore. They loved looking at all the sculptures that were placed throughout the gardens and enjoyed looking at the different plants and wildflowers.

Daisy said – ‘’I loved the Spiral Garden, there was so much to explore, and it was so peaceful!’’

Overall, it was a fantastic day enjoyed by all the pupils. Every child represented the school well and were true ambassadors!
