After a fabulous first term in Year 4, we are back! We are kick starting the term with the topic of 'Rainforests'.
So far, we have located the different countries that have a Rainforest. Do you know why they are all in close proximity to the Equator? We do!
We then moved on to look at the different layers and climates! A great discussion took place regarding the difference between the term 'weather' and 'climate'. This resulted in some fantastic weather reports for the different Rainforests and months. Maple Class definitely have some budding weather reporters!
Continuing with our topical work we were set the task of writing a non-chronological report for a future Rainforest explorer. To be successful writers we learnt about all of the vital features such as sub-headings, themed paragraphs, paragraphs structures and of course using a wide range of sentence structures! If ever you decided to explore the Rainforest be sure to read our fantastic reports.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
