Year 4 - Rainforests

Rainforest Day

Today Year 4 have been very excited to learn about the Rainforest.  We started the day by listening to Mr Hall ,the explorer, who had been to Borneo rainforest.  We enjoyed listening to his stories (about jumping spiders and spikey trees) and looked carefully at his photos.  We then used this information to create a rainforest in a box.  We looked at the different layers of the rainforest, thinking about the climate, the animals and what it would look like. 

We finished the day by making clay animals that live in the rainforest on the different layers.  We have all really enjoyed todays topic and art work.
