Good morning Year 6 - and HAPPY WEDNESDAY. We're halfway through the week - so well done for all your hard work so far. Keep it up - you're all AMAZING!

Afternoon lesson - Geography
Today we are starting a new topic in Geography - all about protecting our world. We will be thinking about whether we are damaging our world and how we can protect it. We will investigate energy production, the oceans and minerals, as well as starting to think about what sustainability means.
Watch the opening sequence from David Attenborough’s State of the Planet from 2009 and the clip of Attenborough’s 2019 documentary (which are below). Have a think about:
What problems for the planet does David Attenborough describe?
What are the differences between the 2009 and 2019 reports?
Today I would like you to write and present a report on the state of the planet, in the form of a weather report. You need to include solutions and/or (partial) success stories, such as the gorillas increasing in numbers due to conservation effort as well as some summaries of the threats facing our planet. Have a look at the global weather report below:
Think about which key areas of threat to our planet you would like to include in your report - for example the melting of polar ice caps in the North and South Poles, the destruction of the Amazon rainforest for Palm oil plantations. Give a brief summary of each threat and why it affects our planet.
When you have filmed your report - or written a script if you prefer not to film yourself, remember to email me. If your video file is too large to email - let me know and I can work out a way for you to send it to me.
Good luck - and enjoy!
