Welcome to Caterpillar class

Our topic this term is Planet SOS – The Problem with Pollution!

This term we will be learning all about pollution and the impact that man-made materials have on our planet. We will be focusing particularly on the ocean and the problem with plastic! We will be investigating different ways that we can reduce the impact we have on our environment, such as learning to compost, recycle and even making our own wind turbines! We will be exploring this topic through some wonderful texts, such as ‘Compost Stew’, ‘What a Waste’, ‘The Window’ and ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’. We will also be learning about the important role of wildlife Sanctuaries, Veterinarians and Wildlife Conservationists.
