White Class visit the Gordon Brown Centre
The children in White Class visited the Gordon Brown Centre this week. As part of our learning about the Amazon Rainforest, we spent the day imagining we were there. We learnt about the skills we might need to refine if we were to try and live there. We discovered that whilst archery is great fun, it'd be difficult to hunt for the animals we might want to eat in the rainforest. On the low ropes, we discovered how challenging it would be to climb through the canopy. Our fire building (and tasty marshmallows) reminded us how tricky it would be to create a fire to survive and how we'd miss our home comforts. Lastly, we built shelter using natural resources. Again, whilst this was great fun, we realised how difficult it is to create shelters that protect from the elements. A small water pistol was enough to soak us through - just imagine facing the incredible weather you might see in the rainforests!
All in all, a wonderful day out. Enjoy the photos of White Class having a great time at GBC!
