Year 1

In Year 1, during the Spring Term, the children enjoyed every aspect of our topic on the Rainforest. The children were asked to research one Rainforest animal and to share with the class in the form of a presentation. All of the presentations were amazing and very diverse! The children's presentations contributed to making a wonderful classroom display.

At the end of our Rainforest project, Class 1 enjoyed a Rainforest Day. The children could come to school dressed as a Rainforest animal; they were involved in creating their own rainforest; making a passport to go to the rainforest and tasting fruits of the rainforest. Some wonderful vocabulary could be heard during the tasting...sweet, yummy, soft, smooth texture! The children gave a thumbs up or down as to whether they liked the taste of mango, pineapple, banana, papaya and passion fruit. To finish the day off, the parents/carers were invited to join us to share and celebrate the end of what turned out to be a very engaging topic for all!
