Year 4/5 - Mr O'Brien

We have been learning all about the life of both animals and plants in the tropical Amazon Rainforest as our main topic. We have been investigating what plants need in order to grow, reproduce and survive. We have been finding creative ways of presenting our work about the four layers of the rainforest. In Literacy, we have been reading and writing non-chronological reports about real rainforest animals such as the three-toed sloth and the red-eyed tree frog. We have even used our imaginary rainforest animals that we made up as part of our Computing lessons to write a report about. For Computing, we have been using the iPads to take virtual tours of the Amazon, creating ebooks using copyright free images and using an app called TinyTap to make Rainforest quizzes which we have screen recorded and put inside our ebooks.
