Welcome to Sycamore Class!
I'm Mrs Plummer the class teacher in Sycamore Class.
Our new topic this term is 'Endangered animals' and we will be exploring the question 'If animals had a voice what would they say?'. We will begin by defining the terms 'endangered, extinct, conservation, vulnerable and habitat' and debate the positives and negatives of life in a zoo. We will use our History and Computing skills to research the lives of 'Diane Fossey and David Attenborough' who have been significant in the conservation of animal life and in Geography we will explore the hot and cold parts of the world where animals are facing extinction. We will link our learning to Science where we will look at food chains and how the destruction of habitats impacts the survival of a number of different creatures. Our topic will be further enhanced through a workshop with Edinburgh zoo and we will work towards creating a presentation for our parents all about endangered animals and how we can help them. We will also pitch ways in which we can raise funds to adopt our own endangered animal from the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF).
Homework will continue to be uploaded onto Seesaw on Fridays and is due to be completed for the
following Thursday each week.
