Our learning challenge question:
What makes a rainforest so special?
We looked at the poem 'Lazy Afternoon' which is a poem about athe authors time in the rainforest! We discussed pace, volume, pitch and using pauses to create effect! Watch our videos below to see us performing the poem!
We discussed how Moawa was feeling about a variety of different events in his life! We wrote rhetorical questions which Moawa would ask himself! We then created a conscience alley for Moawa to walk through! What would he do next?
As a class, we planned and made a persuasive video to stop deforestation. We worked in groups to put our message across. We then used our videos to write persuasive letters to the head of a construction company to stop deforestation.

We were very lucky to receive a visit from Mad Science. We had an assembly all about inventions and our Mad Scientist 'wowed' us with lots of interesting experiments. We then had a workshop in our classroom focused around Bugs and insects. We learnt all about the different body parts and even made an insect model.
During Remembrance week, we learnt all about World War I, why we remember soldiers and why the symbol of the poppy is used! We then learnt a poem all about remembrance!
5K have been working on a rainforest dance, telling a story through movement and expression! Over the course of 6 weeks, we worked on solos, duets and group sections, which we almalgamatec to create a fantastic performance!
