  1. Muhammad thank you for your fantastic information about the rainforest. I am amazed that there are 3000 types of fruit – I’m not sure I could name more than 10 pieces of fruit. Have a go everyone how many can you name?


  2. Muhammad worked really hard on maths and what he learned about the rainforests is they are hot and it rains alot. He also said you can find Howler monkeys that hang by its tail, Jaguars and butterflies. We found out that there are 3000 types of fruit found in the Amazon rainforest.

    Thanks for the work today Mr Fielder
