Term 5

Our topic this term is entitled 'Our Plastic Planet'.

At a time when transport and communication can connect the world in more ways than ever before, what we buy and what we consume can have a profound impact on the lives and societies of people and wildlife of the world. To be a global citizen is to become a part of something bigger than ourselves. Each of us has a responsibility to the communities which we are a part of – to respect each other’s cultures and needs, to support one another and ensure that we work together locally, nationally and globally. As geographers and scientists, who protect our spectacular planet, we are going on a journey through our seas and oceans, explaining the impact us humans have on the environment. Along our way, we will discover the impact of this plastic waste and be inspired to create sculptures using discarded plastic and writing persuasively to campaign against


Our Plastic Planet

This term, we will be looking at the impact which we have on the planet with various pollutants and plastics. This has really created a buzz in the class who had some righteous outrage about the damage we are causing.

We looked at what the planet means to us and how we can help to reduce the impact we have. During the topic we will be looking at our oceans and how we can persuade people to treat them well. We have already written some persuasive letters, created some amazing posters and had some amazing discussions. We look forward to welcoming you into the school at the end of term to share our amazing learning!
