Amazon Spring 2016

The Amazon River is in South America. It runs through Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Peru. There are no bridges that cross the Amazon, mostly because there is no need, the majority of the Amazon River runs through rainforests rather than roads or cities.

This week Amazon class (year 3) tell ust what they’ve learnt about Ancient Greece, their gods and myths. The children also talk about what one thing they would change in the world and about The Lone Robot, a short film they watched in class (you can see this lovely animation here: https://vimeo.com/24030911)

Listeners can try to guess which object the children are describing and have a go at the tounge twister Betty Botter. Last but not least, Mr Turner reveals his choice for our Desert Island feature.
