Autumn 2018 Topic – Secrets of the Rainforest: does deforestation matter?
Year 6 will be exploring the depths of the rainforest during the autumn term in order to discover what secrets it holds. We will discover the types of animals and plants which call this habitat their own and how they have adapted to ensure their survival. We will explore the Mayan civilisation and also famous explorers who discovered South America such as Christopher Columbus. We will also be considering our project question ‘does deforestation matter?’ and will be looking to see what impact we can have. To support our learning we will be visiting Chester Zoo where we will be learning about the animals and plants that inhabit rainforests. We are hoping to work alongside Chester Zoo to look at the impact that Palm oil is having on our remarkable rainforests.
