On Tuesday 6th June Bryon Palacios came to talk to the class about the Rainforest. Byron is an Ecuadorian Ecologist and Field Ornithologist who has been working as a researcher and bird watching tour leader since 2000. A keen birder and nature lover by 'nature', Byron has a vast knowledge of the neotropical and Western Palearctic avifauna, particularly in his native Ecuador and neighbouring Colombia. His sharp ears and eyes permit him to locate the most elusive forest-dwelling birds in the field, successfully leading more than two-hundred trips so far. The children really enjoyed his visit and asked him lots of questions. They impressed him by their knowledge of the Rainforest.
On Thursday and Friday with Mrs Darby the children enjoyed learning about turns, positional language and programming when using the beebots . The beebots can be programmed to follow a set course but you have to remember your right from your left!
