Kingfishers have made a very enthusiastic start on their new topic, ‘Rainforests,’  focused on geography the first half and science in the second half term. We spent the first week exploring and developing the key vocabulary of this unit and this week have been developing our map skills in locating parts of the world, such as continents, the equator, the tropics and the major rainforests. Some of us even made our own presentations on things we found out at home to present to the class.

We have been enjoying quizzes where we get to answer and ask questions about our learning to make sure we remember it. We would love to be quizzed at home as well, feel free to ask us questions such as:

  • How many continent’s are there and what are they called?
  • Where is the equator?
  • What is the only continent with no rainforests?
  • What is the difference between temperate and tropical rainforests?

If you can think of any other rainforest questions, ask them in our comment box below, Kingfishers are happy to answer.

You can also build on our learning by reading our Rosary Topic Treasures, which have been sent home and found below.
