Thursday 12th January - Geography - Exploring where The Amazon Rainforest is located!

In Geography we have started exploring our new topic - The Amazon Rainforest.

From our findings, we used playdough to create our own maps of South America, highlighting where the rainforest and Amazon river lay.
