The Two Miss Dochertys

On Wednesday 2nd March we had a visit from Miss Docherty’s sister who is a teacher at Golfhill Primary. She is also called Miss Docherty and we thought that this was going to be really strange, but it wasn’t.

Miss Docherty brought a lesson for us to do on the smartboard. We had to match up the four layers of the rainforest and use the rubber to reveal the answer. The easiest layer to remember is the emergent layer because it has the tallest trees and it also has the sky in it. We enjoyed doing this task.

After this Miss Docherty talked to us about the different layers and then we did an annotated rainforest diagram, showing each of the layers with a description of each layer beside it.

Primary 6 at Golfhill Primary learned about the rainforest last term and raised money to sponsor 5 endangered animals. Miss Docherty brought the mascots along for our class to meet.

We also had a chance to look at some of the Primary 6 personal projects and we thought that they were fantastic.

We would like to say thankyou to Miss Docherty and hope that she will come back and visit us soon.

  1. Hi there Brilliant Bloggers, sure does sound like the visit was a success. I love the idea of raising money to help protect the rain forests of the world. We all know that the benefits of having such luscious forests reach all across the world and even though we may not reside within the rain forest we all stand to lose a lot if we lose them.

    Here at North Hatley we are all excited by the prospect of sharing ideas and we all feel that helping the world be a better place should be priority number one.

    keep posting we love reading about what other students are up to.
