Year 2 - Matterhorn

Hi Matterhorn!

I'm missing you as the days go by. I hope you're keeping up with your learning. Remember to take it step by step and to give yourself a break in between each activity. Please remember you have your home learning packs to work through, and to read as much as you can. Hopefully it won't be too long before I see you again.

From Mrs. Ferguson

Geography Activity: Under the Canopy

Listen to the sounds of the rainforest.

1. What sounds can you identify? 
2. Can you sort the sounds into groups? e.g. birds, animals, natural sounds.
3. What is a canopy?

Living in the canopy means you can’t see a lot of what’s going on – there are a lot of leaves in the way, so some animals rely heavily on sound. This means they need to listen to sounds to help them around the rainforest.

They call to each other and can recognise when another of their species is calling back. For example, birds know the difference between their tweeting sounds and another bird's tweeting sounds.

4. Choose your favourite rainforest animal and make an amazing animal poster. Here is an example of what it might look like:

Here are some websites to help you choose your animal to research:
