Last Tuesday, Year 4 celebrated Rainforest Day. The boys took part in several activities that immersed them in our topic, pulling together their skills from across the curriculum.
The first activity was a ‘mini beast hunt’, where we visited Early Years woods and categorised bugs we found. The boys also scavenged fallen leaves and twigs to create environmentally friendly crowns. The boys then learnt about frogs from the rainforest and created their own using clay.
After all this hard work, the boys had built up an appetite so tucked into some grasshoppers, grubs and creepy crawlers. We also visited San Diego Zoo through our iPads, to meet some of the animals and learn about their habitats and the threats they face in the wild.
