Week 5 WB 1.2.21


This week our three topic sessions will be focusing on learning about the four layers of the rainforests.

Watch Mrs Phillip’s video, which will introduce what you need to do and give you more information about each layer of the rainforest.

Each day there will be a video which will teach you about a new layer of the rainforest. Today we will focus on the forest floor and the understory layers.

Our final topic lesson this week will be for you to finish adding detail to each layer and to draw your front cover, which is a picture of the rainforest. Look back at the video from Monday which Mrs Phillips made for some ideas of what your picture could look like.



Similar to the Joe Wicks workouts in the morning (if you have done any of these at home), here is another interval training PE session to get you moving your bodies in different ways. The movements are clear and a bit slower than the Joe Wicks ones, so hopefully this will make it a bit easier for you.
