Rainforests 17 Apr 2015

This week we have started looking at Rainforests. We have learnt all about the 4 layers, from forest floor right up to the emergent layer! We have even measured out 50metres, which is the height of some trees in the rainforest. Our role play corner is a rainforest and we have made camp in a clearing. We have torches (it is very dark on the forest floor!), masks and binoculars to spot animals.
Next week we will be making animals for our storytelling and camouflaging them in the vegetation! Our homework was to find out about animals in the Indian rainforest, so keep researching!

Team point challenge: which layer on the rainforest is the noisiest, with lots of birds and monkeys?
