Year 5 have been looking at Religion and the Environment in their RE and PSE studies this term. They have looked again at the stories from the Bible of the Creation and the Flood to remind themselves. The children then got into groups and worked on creating a set of 10 Environmental Commandments for the present day.
In their PSE they have been looking at the impact of environmental issues in the wider World. As we are developing our knowledge and understanding of the people of Brazil and their country they have created their own set of theatre boxes to allow them to put across the points that they have researched and try and answer the question ‘Should we be cutting down the trees of the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil if they are valued as the ‘lungs of the World’?’. The theatre boxes will be used to record their viewpoint using an ipad.
