Thursday 4th June


Before we get started with a longer piece of rainforest reading, here's a 60 second read. It shouldn't take long to read and there are just a few questions to answer afterwards. This can be done verbally (speaking to a parent/sibling) or you can write your answers in your workbooks.


We have already learnt that rainforests are full of different animals, insects and plants. We know that there are different layers that contain different types of animals and insects.

What would it be like to stand in the middle of a rainforest? What do you think the rainforest would sound like? A howl from one single howler monkey can be heard for 3 miles! Can you imagine how noisy it would be with that, as well as all the other insects and animals? 

Look at these images. What can you see?

Now use your imagination and transport yourself to the middle of the Amazon rainforest in South America. Use what you know about the rainforest to think about what you would hear, see, smell, feel and perhaps taste.

Write your ideas in your workbooks. You could use a layout like this. Try not to write single words as this will not help you when we return to school. Write in full sentences with capital letters and full stops. You could even include some brackets or commas in a list!


On Tuesday you dividing numbers by 10 making sure you understood about PLACE VALUE.

Today you will be using place value again to divide one and two digit numbers by 100



This week in writing and topic you have been learning about The Amazon Rainforest. 

You have learnt about where the rainforest is located,  the types of animals which live in that habitat, the layers of the rainforest and the countries which the Amazon Rainforest is located in and the ocean names.


Your activity today is to put all this learning together to create an informative poster

Here are some ideas. I hope that your posters will have more information on showing what you have learnt this week
