  On Monday 21 st November Year 2 travelled tothe Amazonian Rainforest, in Brentford, to findout all about the animals that live there.We were lucky enough to have a hands-on experience and helda variety of tropical animals including a python, hissingcockroaches, stick insects and a pair of water dragons, one ofwhich was called Jemima! During our talk we learnt all aboutcamouflage and how it protects some of the animals frompredators. We learnt about theimportance of rainforest conservationand why trees are important to us. Inaddition we got to stroke a Dwarf Caimanalthough we weren’t allowed to hold him just in case he was in a bad mood!!We got to experience the heat andhumidity of a tropical rainforest as we wandered under thecanopy looking at the different animals. We witnessed the boaconstrictors eyeing up their rat lunch and fed the Koi Carp,observing how they ate and breathed.There was an African SpurredTortoise called Becks who was allowedto wander around the zoo. He was 6 years old and joined the zoo in 2001.Everyone had an amazing time and learnt lots about the animalsof the rainforest, we even learnt what tree poo is! Brampton Bulletin Brampton Primary is a restorative school where the initial response to conflict is tofind a solution where things are put right, the victims needs are met whilst alsomeeting the needs of the wrong doer and meet all the schools responsibilities.

Many thanks to Lynne Russell for the use of her materials here. We found theconference really useful to help us consider how well Restorative Justice is going at Brampton andwhat we need to do to do it even better. Itwas really helpful to hear from other schools who are using the same approachand to offer a little advice to those new tothis approach.We know that this approach will improve relation-ships and help overcome difficulties for children,staff and parents. We hope to have Lynne back inthe new year to share her work with our parents.You might want to try the ideas at home too!   Voluntary Contributions.When school trips are arranged staff do look to get the best fare for transport costs.Unfortunately fuel costs now do make coach travel more expensive. The staff then combinethis with any entrance fees or costs for teaching activities and divide the total by thenumber in the class. There is no profit being made. Whilst we try to give parents as muchwarning as possible of forthcoming events if there is any short fall towards the total, thenthe school has to pay the difference. We do understand that times are hard and for thatreason we always offer for parents to spread the cost over a number of weeks.Unfortunately we also have a tight budget and can not afford to run too many trips at aloss and therefore do ask parents to speak to staff if there are any difficulties.   Football UpdateThe girls football team have played another 3 games in their league. They won their firstmatch against Danson 9-0, then lost against Bexley Academy 2-0 but were then fired up tobeat Gravel Hill 12-0!!
