Year 1: Learning about deforestation

This afternoon we are learning about deforestation. The children were very surprised to learn that around half of the Earth’s plants and animals are in the rainforests. They were also very shocked to learn that every minute an area the size of a football field is cut down.
Year 1 were concerned about what they found out and decided to paint pictures to make their own rainforest for our classroom.
We have also set up a sculpture spot outside where pupils can create a clay plant, insect or animal.
Thank you for all your hard work 🙂
