Throughout Term 1, we have been looking at the incredible diversity of the world's rainforests!
In Geography, we have learned all about the different layers of the rainforest, where they can be located (such as South America) and how they are under threat from human actions.
First we learned about the causes and the dangers of deforestation. Then we wrote imagined diaries of rainforest creatures (such as ocelots or tamarins) who had been affected by the destruction of their habitat. We tried to make our writing emotive so that our reader would feel sympathy for the creatures.
In Art, we used recycled cardboard (after all, we wouldn't want to encourage even more deforestation...) and paint to create these vibrant and bold animal masks!
