20/10/2019 - MUMBAI: The sun was out, skies were a clear blue, the usually murky waters of the Arabian sea at Versova beach reflected a brightness too that enveloped the 3000 volunteers who had gathered for the coastal clearup.
Welcome back to a new term. I hope that you had a lovely summer. The children are settling back into routines very well!
Our new topic ‘Saving Planet Earth’ is Geography based. Our aim is to investigate the causes and effects of environmental change, which will include looking at global warming, climate change, sustainability, conservation and deforestation. We will be focusing on the impact these changes have on different countries, as well as looking at world trade links, sustainability and natural resources. This will then lead onto finding out about ways to address these environmental problems for a better future at a local level, including how we can play our part at Thrupp.
Other curriculum areas will also link into our global awareness themes where possible, including through mathematics where possible. In English, we will be focusing on balanced arguments, persuasive writing, and poetry and stories about environmental issues. In Art, we will be creating collages based on different environments and in D.T. we will be designing and making clothes from renewable and recyclable materials. We will be holding a fashion show as part of our class assembly at the end of term!
