We look forward to seeing our wonderful Year 6 children back at school tomorrow after hopefully having a well-deserved rest. We hope you have all had a brilliant half term break and are staying safe and healthy.
There’s a Rumble in the Jungle
We were so impressed with the children’s enthusiastic attitude towards our project last half term. Learning about the amazing Amazon rainforest provided us with lots of fun writing opportunities. The children created their own descriptive Amazon restaurant menus and fictional tales of unbelievable survival in this vast and inhospitable place. Their maturity really shone as soon as we discussed the global crisis that we face due to unsustainable deforestation. After careful planning, the children produced some very persuasive arguments for and against deforestation. Watching David Attenborough’s ‘A Life on Our Planet’ * towards the end of our project showed us some of the devastating effects that deforestation is causing, but more importantly it highlighted the changes that we can easily make to ‘rewild’ our planet again. From this, the children created their own poems to capture all that they had learned. We were blown away by their passion towards this and can’t wait for to you see all off their published work.
*We skipped large chunks of the documentary as we felt some parts were not appropriate. It would be great for you to watch the entire film with your child if you are able to.
Creative juices also flowed in art! Using a range of media, the children produced pictures of some of the Amazon’s flora and fauna.
Here are a few snippets of some of their written pieces and photos of their beautiful artwork from this half term. We think you will agree that we have quite a talented bunch of writers and artists among us!
