The day began with a virtual tip to the Amazon Rainforest using the VR headsets.  Working collaboratively the children had to describe with they could hear and see to their partner.  There was lots of pointing in strange directions to things that weren’t actually in the room.  All was going well until a massive spider crawled onto the screen, there were then lots of screams and trying to escape!  The children thorough enjoyed seeing a range of animals and how locals use the river as part of their everyday life. Using their Be Ambitious skill, Be Curious, Year 4 asked lots of big questions about the way of life for the tribes of the rainforest.  

Once out of the rainforest it was on with their dancing shoes and time for a salsa lesson.  Whilst learning the basic steps salsa dancing, Year 4 also learnt about the party atmosphere of Latin America, the joys of dance and the up-beat tempo of the music. 

Finally, being risk takers, Year 4 completed a blind task and smell test of foods that come from the rainforests.  There was much excitement at the same time as a little hesitation not knowing what they would be tasting.  The biggest surprise came from the chocolate and how bitter it is before sugar and milk are added to make it sweet and creamy.   

The children were all very engaged and excited about their learning and are now looking forward to the term ahead.
