Spring 2020

This term we have been exploring the rainforest. We have discovered where different rainforests are located around the world, what they are like and who lives in the rainforest (including animals, plants and indigenous people). We have also learnt about deforestation of the rainforest and investigated different ways it can be saved. 
In English we have been reading ' The Great Kapok Tree' by Lynne Cherry and ' The Green Ship' by Quentin Blake.  These texts have inspired us to write our own narratives which are set in the rainforest. 
In maths we have been learning all about multiplication and division. We have been using the place value counters to help us to share equally and make different arrays. We are also all working very hard practising our times tables!
In Art we have been learning all about the painter Henri Rousseau. We have looked closely at his paintings of the jungle and rainforests, which inspired us to paint our own pictures in his style.
