This term the children will work towards hosting a red-carpet premiere event to promote a nature documentary. The children will need to research different biomes including the desert, rainforest, aquatic, grassland and tundra. Their research will include finding out about each biomes’ wildlife, vegetation, temperature and level of rainfall. The children will focus on Brazil as part of the rainforest study and compare the lifestyle of a Brazilian child to their own in the UK. As part of their vehicle, the children will study different documentaries. After splitting into groups, they will each produce a part of the documentary with a focus on the different biomes. The children will either create a backdrop, use green screen or our local environment to record also producing a script and music to use in their documentary.
