Spring Term 1 (January 4th to February 18th 2022)
Afternoon Lesson Instructions:
Whilst you are home learning, please work your way through the following afternoon lesson activities. You may not get all the way through them if your isolation has ended and you are due back to school but just start at number 1 and get as far as you can whilst you are at home or pick and choose the order you do the lessons. Each lesson will probably take you more than one afternoon to do well.

Sadly, lots of the Amazon rainforest is being cut down every day. This is called deforestation. Listen to the song, watch the video and then read the information to learn about deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.
