Autumn 1

This half term we are learning all about the Amazon rainforest and Brazil. We are reading 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson in our English lessons. So far, we have enjoyed going on a 'trip to the Amazon' where we saw a range of animals adapted to suit their environment; created our own imaginary creatures that could live in the rainforest; and made and tasted rainforest fruit smoothies.


We're all loving the learning adventure so far and we're excited to invite you to a carnival later this half term where there will be music, dance, drinks and headdresses.  Keep an eye out for invitations which will be sent home in a few weeks.

Our Work

Delicious smoothies!

We loved having the chance to make our own rainforest smoothies! We used a range of tasty fruits, such as strawberries, bananas, kiwis and mango to create a unique drink. Following this, we wrote a recipe so other people can re-create them.
On Monday, year 6 were lucky enough to enjoy a visit from Zoo Lab. We learnt and met a range of different animals, such as a large millipede, a giant African snail, a corn snake, a scorpion and a rat. These have inspired our very own non-chronological reports.
