Rainforest Experts in P1!
This week we’ve been reading lots of stories and looking through non-fiction books to find out everything we can about rainforests.
We’ve discovered that:
- the Amazon Rainforest is the biggest one in the world
- the Amazon Rainforest is in South America
- even though we’re a long way away from the Amazon Rainforest, we still breathe the oxygen that the trees make.
We decided to find out more about the animals that live in the rainforest and painted amazing rainforest pictures to show what we learned from the books we read. We even had a go at doing some writing to go on our rainforest wall – we’re getting really good at using our ‘Sentence Starter’ cards and then with our own amazing brain power, we’re listening to the sounds in words and having a go at writing by ourselves!
We’ve been watching a little bit of The Lorax each day, see if your child can tell you about what happened to the Truffala Trees, who The Lorax is and what this film makes them think about. Any comments on the blog earn House Points so if your child is keen to share then we’d love to see what they think!
Next week we’re diving into the ocean to find out what’s happening to this wonderful place and the animals that live there. There’s lots on the news at the moment about plastic in the oceans, so if you have a chance to share this with your child that would be great.
