Good Morning Year 5,
We hope that you are all well. Here are your tasks for today:
We are going to continue our work on the Amazon Rainforest.
A bit of background information:
Rainforests are Earth’s oldest living ecosystems. An ecosystem is made up of all the living things that make up the communities and life in an area. A puddle, the desert and a river are all examples of ecosystems. An ecosystem also includes non-living materials such as water, rocks, soil and sand.
Today, we would like you to watch the following clips and make some notes (you will need these notes for tomorrow’s activity). Make notes on the features of rainforest ecosystems:
Some clips will have timings next to them – these are the parts of the videos that are relevant.
Below is a simple glossary that may come in handy over the next few weeks.
Please do keep in touch to let us know what you have been up to (it doesn’t need to be about school work). Perhaps you have learnt a new skill whilst you have been away from school (washing up perhaps! 😊). On a serious note, it would be great to hear if you have had the time to try something new or even if you have been able to spend more time on one of your interests/hobbies outside of school.
Miss Wood and Mrs Canipa
