Summer Term 1: The Rainforest

Image result for the rainforest

This term, we will be using a range of sources to find out about The Rainforest. As we have already looked at where chocolate originates from and The Mayans - who were based in South America, this unit follows on nicely. Our classes will look at different layers of the forest, animals that live there and of course the devastating effects of deforestation.
