Our context for Autumn 2020 is 

Under the Canopy

During this context we will read 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell and write our own adventure story.

We will research rainforests across the world and discover why they are so important to preserve as well as finding out why deforestation is occurring.

After researching living things in a tropical rainforest, and other artists' work, we will create a giant collage of a rainforest scene for our classroom display.

We will draw line graphs to present climate information and compare the climate in Manaus to Cardiff.
