Welcome to Year 4's blog! We've had a busy yet enjoyable start to the term, and have quickly settled back in to life in Miss Kinchin's class.
We've started our fabulous new topic, 'Rumbling Rainforests,' and we kick-started our learning by making salt dough maps of South America. We had to use different types of maps to locate the countries, Amazon River and mountain ranges.
After that, we started a research project about the layers of the rainforest. We used the iPads to research the differences between the emergent layer, canopy, understory and forest floor. We discovered fascinating facts... Did you know that only 2% of sunlight reaches the forest floor? As well as that, we were amazed to learn that there are so many animals living in the rainforest. Once we'd done our research, we started designing our flip books which is where we'll be writing up our information for other people to read!
Overall, it has been a positive start to the school year and we are looking forward to what's still yet to come!
