During our summer term topic on rainforests, Year 5 will be learning about the location of rainforests across the world. We'll focus on the Amazon rainforest, and will consider the physical and human features of both South America and the UK. In our D&T lessons, we'll be researching Mayan masks, and creating our own masks using clay. During art, we will focus on Henri Rousseau. Inspired by his work, we will create our own rainforest collages. In English, we'll use these collages as inspiration to write descriptive settings of the rainforest. We'll research the work of David Attenborough, and using our computing skills, we'll create a documentary on a rainforest animal of our choice.
