Autumn 2 - Let's Explore: The Rainforest. 

 

In this half term the children will be continuing their investigation into the different climates and reaches of our Planet. Using inspirational speeches from; Greta Thunberg, David Attenborough and key note speakers at this year’s COP27, the children will be writing persuasive letters to other children and adults to change the way we look after our planet. 

The children will be looking at fictional stories of "A Rang-Tan in my bedroom" and "Greta and the Giants" in addition to non-fiction texts around the Rainforest and our planet to build their knowledge for their writing. 

 

 

 

 

Iceland Advert - There's a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom

There's a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom

World Book Day's offering sees a book in partnership with Greenpeace and Iceland (the supermarket not the country). It sees an orangutan come and stay with a little girl and cause chaos but why did she come to stay with her in the first place? Narrated by Anne James.

Greta and the Giants [Children's story | Read Aloud]

Greta Thunberg to world leaders: 'How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood'

Watch Greta Thunberg speak to an audience of adults over how we're not looking after our planet.

Autumn 1 

Frozen Planet

 

 

This term we'll be exploring the most Southern Part of our Planet - Antarctica. We'll be looking at Ernest Shackleton's Journey to the Antarctic and how he used our school values of 'Never give up' and 'Teamwork' to survive. Using our Geography skills we'll explore the Oceans and the Continents and to look at how the climates change.  We'll explore the lives of penguins understanding how the survive in these conditions. 

 

Launching our topic will be a message from David Attenborough asking us to think of ways we can spread a message about looking after our planet.
