I hope that you are all well and ready for today's activities. The Rainforest Project is now in full swing and I'm very pleased that so many of you are enjoying the activities.  Remember, you can do the activities in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have time.  For those of you who are in school today, I hope that you have a lovely day with Mrs Higginbotham.

● Where in the World are the Rainforests?
Using an atlas or online map, can you locate the continents (Africa, Asia, Australia, Central America and South America) where rainforests can be found?

 Click here to open the map or to print a copy  -rainforest map-V297719982.pdf-  

● Sketch a Spider Monkey or a Tree Frog
Can you create a detailed sketch of an animal that inhabits the rainforest? Use  pencils, crayons or any drawing tool you prefer.
Copy an image of a rainforest animal, thinking carefully about the patterns and tones. 
Here are some pictures for you to look at and there are lots more if you search 'Images of rainforest animals' on the internet.

● Fascinating Forest Floor- Can you create a model replica of the forest floor?
Collect materials from the garden or if you go out for a walk.
What does the rainforest floor look like?   Which animals and insects might be there?
● The Sounds of the Rainforests- 
There are many wonderful and intriguing sounds that can be heard in the rainforest.

Watch this BBC Our Planet clip.

You can watch real footage from a rainforest here.
You can zoom in to look closely and control the camera to move around the page to look at different things.

Which animal makes the most noise in the rainforest?
Can you predict which animals the sounds have come from.
Can you copy these sounds using objects from around the home?

Rainforest Insects
●   Have a look at this video about rainforests:  

● There are lots of insects/mini-beasts in the rainforest.
You can see some pictures of them here:
Rhinoceros beetle                               Heliconius Butterflies                          Amazon Caterpillar
● Look for mini-beasts living in the garden or on a walk. What are these mini beasts called? Which one do you like the best and why?
● Try drawing pictures of the mini-beasts you find.

Trees and paper
Many trees in the rainforest are chopped down to use for paper.  Can you create a poster about saving and reusing paper at home?
● Take a look at the The Rainforest Alliance website 
It has  information, resources and games. 
There are stories, as well as an interactive tree house and a Jewels of the Earth game

Work hard, be kind and have a fun day. I will be back with you tomorrow.
Mrs Micklefield 

A note for Parents, 
Tomorrow, one of the suggested tasks is to find a simple recipe that uses chocolate and to follow the instructions to make it.  It might be useful to know about this to help with planning your shopping list!  A chocolate bar would also be useful for the fractions work. 
If you have any queries or problems, or anything you need help with, please feel free to contact me: If the children have any photographs, pictures or work that they are particularly proud of, please forward them to me and I will post some of them on the website later in the week.
I hope you are all well. 
Mrs Micklefield
