Today you are going to be learning about a little boy called Romel who lives in the rainforest. Read/listen to the audio on the PowerPoint and complete the fact file to show what you have learnt about him and his life.
Topic - Geography
Now you have learnt about Romel and what his life is like, we would like you to compare your house with his. Do you both have walls, doors, windows? Do you both have a house made from bricks? Do you both have a roof made from tiles?
Have a look through the PowerPoint and listen to the audio and complete the worksheet.
Topic - Music
We have been looking at using our bodies to make music and last week we started adding chants and looked at the folk song ‘Epo I Tai Tai E’ from the Maori people of New Zealand. This week we are going to look at all of those combined. You may have seen the film ‘The Lion King’. There is also a musical of ‘The Lion King’ where you can see some amazing performances of songs such as ‘The Circle of Life’. This particular song has a chant that starts off the song and becomes the beat of the music when the lyrics are sung on top. The YouTube video below plays the lyrics and the chant. Your challenge today is to see if you can copy the chant in the music yourself. You might need to keep pausing the video and rewinding it. If you can do this, can you continue to do the chant whilst the singer is singing the main lyrics? If you want to have a go with someone at home, you might want to do the chant whilst they sing the song? If you have the movie ‘The Lion King’, you might want to watch this and join in with the songs.

Last week we looked at moving like a monkey. I hope you had fun making your monkey dances. This week, we are going to look at using our bodies to move like another animal from the rainforest - a tiger! Think about how you will use different movements to make yourself look like a tiger. They will be big and strong movements. They might be slow or fast movements but they will be very controlled. Watch this dance video where the people move like a tiger. Can you copy their dance moves? To challenge yourself you could make up your own dance moves like a tiger.
