Rainforest Researchers!

To get up to speed with our Rainforest topic, we completed some research on the famous Amazon. We looked at the flora and fauna of the river and the forest, studied the modern and ancient civilisations the jungle has been home to, and examined the threats that humans pose to the rainforest.

We also used this an opportunity to try out our collaboration and questioning skills, which we are developing as part of the new Golden Owl award! We worked with our partners and generated questions which we then found the answer to using our research.

Amazon Animals

As part of our research on the Amazon, we did a quick but of research of the animals that live there. Do you recognise any of them?

Wonder

Whilst looking at our unit on ‘Wonder’ we got to create our own characters based on Auggie. We also created our own ‘Choose Kind’ quotes.

Planetary Orbits

We made stop motion videos to demonstrate the orbits of the inner planets, as well as the Earth and the Moon. Here’s a great example from Maisy and Joe!
