This week’s Talk Time is linked to our current topic Geography and has a social theme.
What could we do in our local environment to make a positive impact on the world?
Within our Geography lessons, we’re learning about the term ‘interdependence’. This is the dependence of two or more things on each other. Interdependence is closely linked to our Talk Time this week as there are things that we do on a local scale that have consequences on a national and international scale. For example, if you live within walking distance from school you could choose to walk rather than drive. This would impact the world in a positive way as there would be one fewer cars on the road, helping to reduce the CO2 emissions.
Use this time to have a discussion at home with family and friends. You could think about the following:
- What have you seen around your local area that has been designed to support the local environment? (i.e. recycling areas, litter picking)
- How does this have a positive impact on the world?
- Is there a change you could make in your life to help the local environment?
