YEAR 5 - AMAZON RAINFOREST TOPIC

8th February 2021
 
SPRING TOPIC
 
One child said "I have enjoyed creating the Amazon Rainforest around us" - as you can see from the photos below!  It is one of our favourite topics in Year 5 because children enjoy talking about the environmental issues that are happening in the world at the moment.
 
Whilst watching Sir David Attenborough's "Our Planet Earth" programme, we learnt a lot of information about the different animals of the rainforest.
 
The children's book "The Great Kapok Tree" by Lynne Cherry is always thoroughly enjoyed by the children. In it, two men arrive in the Amazon rainfores and one gives the other orders to cut down a large kapok tree. The children especially enjoy the debate for protecting the Great Kapok Tree.
 
Even though Year 5 have not visited the Amazon rainforest, they always write amazing settings descriptions!
