Summer 2 - Rainforest Adventure and Healthy Eating

This half term we will be learning about rainforests and the importance of healthy eating. Please find below a few clips for your child to watch as an introduction to our topic. 


To give the children an entry point into the topic we would like the children to make something to do with the Rainforest.

Here are a few ideas;

• Paint a picture of the Rainforest with the trees and animals.

• Create a fact file about Rainforests; where are they, what do they have, what lives there, what is happening to them, are they important?

• Make a list of what lives there.

• Make a model of the Rainforest using creative materials.

• Write about how you could get there.

• Cut out a rainforest animal mask.

• Use a shoe box to recreate a mini Rainforest.

• Print pictures of trees or animals from the Rainforest.

Please bring in their creative work on Monday 7th June as these will then form part of our display.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Enjoy getting creative!

Home learning for today


English: Starting point – using the photographs from our Linford Lakes trip on 12th May 2021 (these are on the class Facebook group already), choose three pictures and write at least three sentences about each picture. Remember to use time order words, describing words (adjectives) and past tense verbs.

Maths: starting point -  in order to answer the questions, think is it asking you to add or takeaway. Use your skills to help answer the following math word problems. It is useful to identify the important information first.

  1. There are 8 children in class, 2 more children come in. How many are there now?
  2. 5 children are at a party, 5 more children join the party. How many children are there altogether?
  3. If there are 12 bikes outside and 2 children take a bike each, how many bikes are left?
  4. I have 20 chocolate cakes, I give 10 of them away, how many do I still have?
  5. Bob has 9 sweets and Tom has 9 sweets. How many sweets are there in total?
  6. Sandy had 25 Duplo bricks, 4 went under the chair. How many remain?
