Topic: What are the causes of climate change?

Thursday 12 January 2023

The children are busily enjoying the geography topic and have this week been learning about the causes of climate change.

The children read articles and watched a video about how increased food waste, deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels are contributing to the increasing temperature of the Earth. Methane and carbon dioxide are the main contributing gases that are destroying the ozone layer. The year 6’s were given the opportunity to show off their creative sides and create a booklet that shows their knowledge of this topic.

Here are some lovely examples of what they produced.

Help at home: Ask your child about the causes if climate change. Do they know the vocabulary for this term? Can they give you any definitions?
