Topic

 

This term we are learning about The Amazing Rainforests. Did you know, it is estimated that about half of the planets plants and animals live in the rainforest? Our rainforests are extremely important to the ecology of the Earth and produce almost half the planets oxygen. We will be learning about the flora and fauna of the rainforest and what we can do to protect it for future generations.
