What on Earth?
Our topic focus this term is rainforests.
We will be locating the world's rainforests and exploring their physical features such as its different layers in Geography. We will also be looking at global issues such as deforestation and palm oil farming.
Our working scientifically skills continue to be developed this term by observing and comparing the life cycles of plants and animals in their local environment with other plants and animals in the Amazon.
In English, we will be writing persuasive letters and leaflets about the effects of desforestation and palm oil farming on the rainforest.
Fractions is our big unit in Maths this term. Please encourage your child to learn and practice their timetables, up to 12. They are so important, particularly when working with fractions!
