Why The Rainforest Matters

 

In Class we have been doing lots of learning relating to the Rainforest. We have been really engaged with the topic and have discussing why it matters within our environment.

Children stood up in groups and discussed why it is important and what we could do to save it. All the children were very clear and were full of interesting information!

Amazing Atlas Work

It is amazing how far technology has come! However, one key thing to learn to use is an Atlas. In class we started by looking at what our own country was like. We explored England and how we can use a key to find out specific information.

Many were amazed at the sized of London. We then started looking at The Rainforest, which is our topic.
