Welcome to Sycamore Class!

Our new topic this term is 'Plastic Pollution' and we will be considering what is going on in the world today and the impact that plastic waste is having upon the environment. We will explore the term 'recycling' and look at ways of recycling everyday items in our homes and within the classroom. In Art we will study the work of Rodney 'Rodrigo' McCoubrey and think about how we can use our plastic waste to create our own sculptures. We will use our effective searching skills in Computing to research the impact that plastic waste has had upon the environment with a particular focus on the ocean. This will be further enriched within our Science learning where we will look at living things and their habitats. We will think about what makes a creatures habitat unique and why it is important before considering how humans have impacted them as well as ways of improving the problems we have created. Throughout this topic we will use the text 'The Window' by Jeannie Baker to support our understadning.
Thank you for your support :)
