First we will begin our topic by learning all about the rainforest including the plants, climate and animals. We shall then be writing a non-chronological report about a rainforest in Literacy. In Art, we will be designing and making a collage of a rainforest animal. We will then be making a rainforest with a mechanism in DT. Next, in Geography we will be looking at different types of maps and creating our own simple map, with a key, to help navigate through a rainforest. Nearer the end of the term, we will be learning about an explorer, Christopher Columbus and how he influenced history.
