Revision/ Test- contains a question from each area to check understanding and to revise the topic. Choice of answers for some questions, while others need a bullet point or sentence to be written (lower abilities may need a scribe for this). Label the 4 different layers of the Rainforest. Match the description with the correct photo and label. Lower abilities- cut out labels and stick in correct places. Middle abilities- cut out photos and stick. Copy labels. Higher abilities- cut out photos and stick. Write own labels. Includes an extension worksheet for students to write their own descriptions of the 4 layers of the rainforest and a mapping exercise for students to find where rainforests are located around the world and colour in on the map (map be best if printed on A3). Weather Use the chart to record the weather for 6 weeks in your local area, or use the 2nd chart to compare 2 places or countries.

For lower ability levels- includes pictures of sunshine, clouds, snow, rain, storm, fog, frost, rainbow, and wind to help with understanding. Allows them to observe the days weather and think about what the weather will be like next week. For higher ability levels- space to write the weather they can see and allows them to predict what they think the weather will be next week. Children could also take their own photos of the weather and stick them on the chart. A clip from BBC weather showing the latest weather forecast could be shown during the lesson, and children could be encouraged to look at different areas of the UK or another country to compare the weather in different regions. Use the 2 worksheets to compare understanding before carrying out the observations and after to check learning and understanding.
