Thank you so much for the kind donations after our Macbeth performance. We were able to sponsor a Guide Dog for 2 years with your generosity. Meet Rosie our new class pet. We're going to be learning all about what a guide dog means to those people that need one and the training that a guide dog goes through.
This half term we'll be learning all about rainforests.
There will be a big focus on geography, specifically: biomes, South America, the impact of deforestation and the way of life of indigenous people. We will be learning about the significance of the rainforests on the rest of the world. Be prepared to do lots of debating around the political issues of climate change!
