Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

This term our topic is Rainforests.

We will be learning about the largest rainforest in the world, the Amazon, and all the different animals and plants that live and grow there. The children will be using their debating skills to decide whether zoo captivity is a good or bad for the protection of rainforest animals, whilst learning about deforestation and its effects on the eco system. Also we will be studying rivers.
