Autumn 2: North and South America


The children will be continuing to take a road trip down through the Americas in which we have just reached South America where we will focus on the Amazon Rainforest. We will be looking at the biodiversity in the continent of South America and the positive and negative effects of deforestation. Finally, the children will be producing a variety of different foods which take their origins from the two continents, before preparing and cooking food for a food market where parents are welcome to come and fill their bellies (for a small fee).
