Rainforest in a Shoebox

In Geography, Year 4 have been studying the ‘Contrasting Environment’ topic.  As part of their study they created desert dioramas to understand the challenges of the hostile environment on plant and animal life.  Year 4 were also set an optional Easter holiday task to produce a ‘rainforest in a shoebox’.  This was to understand the characteristics of the different layers (stratification) and appreciate the biodiversity in a rainforest environment. 

There were many superb models but the winner was Theo Broby and the runners up were Arun Stewart, Philip Mikkelsen and Max Verdult. Well done to all of the boys who took part.
