Today the children in Year 5 have been busy making their 3D structures of the Rainforest. They have first used water-based paint  to paint the inside of the box to create a rainforest background. They also made some  ferns, philodendrons, trees, butterflies and rainforest animals using plain paper or crepe paper whilst waiting for the paint to dry. Tightly twisted strips of green crepe paper to make jungle vines. To add that extra detail they used  - small rocks, twigs, dried leaves, and other materials from nature to add texture to their diorama.
