Year 4

Learning Link: 

The Amazing Amazon

This term we will be learning about the Amazon Rainforest and the plants and animals that live there.  We will be exploring the differences between the Amazon climate with our own, and how the people and creatures have adapted to live there.  Crucially, we will be learning about how important rainforests are to our planet’s health and how we should protect them.  As part of this learning journey, we will be reading and writing stories from the Amazon as well as writing persuasive letters.  We will also be finding out about how rainforests have inspired artists and musicians.  So there’s no time for monkeying around, let’s go ape and explore the Amazing Amazon!
