Topic
Our topic this half term is all about the rainforest and a lot of what we learn will be based on our class text, 'The Great Kapok Tree'. We will be looking at deforestation, the layers of a rainforest, habitats, rainforest animals, where rainforests are in the world and what makes a rainforest. We will also be completing lots of writing, art work and applying our computing skills in this topic.
