Year 4 Look!
A poem about tropical fruit is the starting point for an exploration of the mighty trees of the rainforest and the life they support. Pupils use ideas from Grace Nicholls poem about Caribbean fruit to investigate their own favourite. They research the animals and sounds of the rainforest. Outcome: To use similes to write a list poem modelled on a traditional rhyme.
