Welcome to Juniper Class
Welcome to Year 6 Juniper class! Hope you have had a lovely half term. Miss Brook teaches Juniper class, along with our TA Miss Maines. Year 6 is an exciting year, full of opportunities and chances to shine. We will be learning a huge amount this year, and have some interesting topics to cover.
This term we are looking at Rainforests. In our topic sessions we are going to be using our geogrpahical skills to locate tropical and temperate rainforests. We will then be focusing on the amazon rainforest in Brazil - and Brazil's human and physical features. We will then be looking at deforestation and it's effects, and then coltan mining.
