Fury Class (Year 1)

All About Me

Welcome to Fury Class!

The Rainforest

During the spring term Fury class will be learning all about the rainforest. Below is some of the exciting activities and learning we will be doing.

We will be using a variety of non-fiction texts to learn about the features of an information text, which we will use to help us write a new class fact book on different animals in the rainforest. We shall also be visiting some rainforest animals at Marwell Zoo after the half term, and will write a recount of our trip as well as some poetry.

We will be focussing on the colourful rainforest for our art and DT work. We will use the illustrations in the text ‘We’re Roaming in the Rainforest’ by Laurie Krebs to create some beautiful oil pastel pictures of animals. We will also have a go at making some rainsticks, animal masks and study the different patterns that animals have.

We will classify and sort rainforest animals, as well as learning all about what the rainforest is and how it is made up. We will look at the different layers of the rainforest, and which animals live where. We will look at the different parts of a plant and think about why the rainforest is such an important place. We shall also be identifying where in the world the rainforests are located and begin using map skills to locate them. 

Please see the weekly planning letters for information on what the children have been up to!
