Around the World - The Amazon

This week Reception were on the move again - this time landing in the Amazon. We learnt about some amazing creatures such as emerald tree boas, anteaters, archer fish and how they have adapted to live in this environment. We painted amazing pictures and then drew animals on top - we really liked drawing the bird-eating tarantulas! We found out that the weather in the rainforest is humid, damp, hot and sticky. In our indoor PE session we practised moving like jaguars, monkeys and tapirs. Before we flew home, we wrote a postcard to our class from the rainforest, using describing words to explain what we could 'see'.
