Does the rainforest make a good home?



This term, we will learn all about Brazil, including the amazing Amazon rainforest. We will consider the diversity within the country and the people who live there and begin to make comparisons with our own lives in the UK. 


Deforestation is something we have already discussed during PSHE, however during this topic we will explore the impact of palm oil farming on the rainforest. 


We will discover Samba style drumming during our music lessons and have the amazing chance to collaborate with Year 1 with our drumming performance alongside their fantastic carnival!


During our art lessons, we will have the opportunity to look at the work of John Dyer - an environmental artist - before creating our own painting inspired by the Amazon rainforest and landscapes in Brazil.
