This half term, we are exploring the Amazing Amazon Rainforest. We have started the term by decorating our classroom with leaves, tree vines and Amazon animals bringing the jungle to Year 3's classroom. In English, we have researched Amazon animals and explored and wrote our own poems in the style of Paul Hess. We have begun reading and exploring 'How the Crocodile got his bumpy back', and How the Rhinoceros got his skin'. Next week, we will begin planning and writing our own 'How the' stories. In Topic, we are focusing on art work by Henri Rousseau and will be created our own artwork using the 3 layers of the jungle. We will also be exploring the Yanomami and Jawara tribe and making our own headdresses.
