Last half term year 4 delved deep into the Amazon Rainforest. They explored the different hemispheres on a map and were able to find out where the world’s rainforests were located. Next they found out about the Tropics and how the weather and climate in these areas is hot and wet all year round!

The children used their fact finding skills to make wonderful fact files for different species of animals that live in the Amazon and found out about the four layers of the rainforest where these animals live.

The Amazon Rainforest is huge! So large, in fact, that it covers nine countries! The children used their map skills to locate the names of each of these countries. As an end to this topic the children painted cardboard tubes from wrapping paper to create a beautiful classroom display.
