    Rainforest Survival

    Following on from our class novel, The Explorer, the Year 6 children have been researching rainforest survival. They are now starting to use this knowledge to write their own survival handbooks.

    Here is one child's introduction to give you a taster of what is yet to come.

    The ginormous tropical rainforest: a mysterious palace of beauty yet an abandoned executioner's yard of nightmares. Imagine a place so hot it feels like your skin is about to set on fire; imagine a territory so colossal that you can get lost like in the Minotaur's maze; imagine an area so wet it feels like you are drowning every breathe you take: this is what it is like to exist in the rainforest. Surviving in the Amazon is challenging; some people may even say near on impossible!

    This survival guide will prevent you from being a mosquito's Malaria target, a razor-toothed piranha's pudding, a slimy snake's snack or an orang-utans origami object.  If you found yourself lost or hopelessly abandoned in a never-ending trap do you think you would have the skills to avoid death- to avoid the grasp of the green giant? If not I highly suggest that you read on.
