In this section, you will find a range of learning opportunities each week that you can complete. Sometimes, you might have a PE task, a science task, art/ DT or even history or geography task. Remember to take lots of pictures of what you get up to
Final week of rainforest fun!
You have produced some fantastic work throughout our rainforest project, and now it's time to showcase your learning. Have a look at the rainforest bingo card below and choose the task that you would like to complete. Perhaps you'll create a game to help people learn about the rainforest or maybe, you might choose to create a little book? The choice is yours .
Rainforests: how do they benefit the world?
Last week we found out about deforestation and the impact it has on the environment. This week, you're going to find out about why the rainforest is special and how it benefits people (including us) and the wider world. Follow the geography project outline below to help you with your tasks. Remember to research safely when online, and get permission from an adult first.
Deforestation: save our rainforests
This week we're going to be learning about deforestation. In rainforests around the world, many trees are being chopped down, destroying the natural world; destroying habits and making species become endangered. Follow the geography project outline to find out your tasks.
Creatures of the rainforest.
This week, we are going to be researching about the different animals that can be found in the Amazon Rainforest. Before, we found out about living things in the Amazon River, but this week, I want you to find out about the creatures that lurk on the forest floors or swing from the canopy’s branches.
Life in the Amazon.
There are many people today, who live in the rainforests around the world. For them, their way of life is very different to ours and they choose to adopt more traditional ways of life. This week for your project, you are going to find out about some of the traditional tribes. What does their daily life involve? What do their homes look like? Can you compare your life to their life?
Does it always rain in a rainforest?
Last week you found out about the different layers of the rainforest. This week you're going to be investigating and exploring 2 areas:
1) What is the climate like in a rainforest? How often do they experience rain? What are the average temperatures like? 2) Can you research and find out about the water cycle? Use the project overview to help you complete each day. I can't wait to see the creative things you produce this week.
Welcome to the rainforest
Last half-term we had a great time exploring South America and I loved seeing all of your brilliant project outcomes. We're going to be zooming in a bit further into this topic by looking at the physical geography of the continent. This week, we're launching our new topic- rainforests. You will find out about what rainforests are and where we can find them in the world; the different layers of the rainforest, and finally an exciting creative project. I can't wait to see what you get up to. Remember to send any work to our class email. Oaks@gladehill.nottingham.sch.uk
2016 Olympics hosted by Rio de Janeiro
Last week we compared London and Rio by looking for similarities and differences. A similarity between them is that both of these cities hosted the Olympic games. The most recent Olympics was held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. This week, you are going to find out about the 2016 Rio Olympics, the history of the Olympics and a few exciting creative tasks. I can't wait to see what you come up with

Each day you will take on a new task, and as usual there is an exciting creative challenge (try to think outside of the box) ! I can't wait to be blown away again.
