The Amazon Rainforest
We are now going to be studying the Amazon Rainforest. This will include looking at the issue of deforestation and the damage to our planet. The children will be writing a persuasive text either 'for' or 'against' deforestation.
We will then move on to writing a story set in the Amazon Rainforest. This will be based on the novel by Rudyard Kipling - 'The Jungle Book'. The children will be watching sections of the film and discussing how the director has created characters personalities and how they have created atmosphere via settings.
