Welcome to our new topic ‘Planet in Peril’. This topic focuses on the dangers that are facing our planet at the moment – in particular the climate crisis. The topic begins with a focus on what is happening. We will look at the geography and scientific understanding of the greenhouse effect and what causes it. The children will then move onto who and what is causing this. We will start the topic by learning the story of Sahena someone who lives in Bangladesh and has been severely affected by flooding caused by the climate crisis based on true events that OXFAM is trying to help with.
