How can we make the world a better place? (Autumn 2)

How can we make the world a better place?

This half term we will be learning more about the world and how we can make it a better place. We will be exploring what the world is and develop our understanding that it is bigger than just Sutton-In-Ashfield. We will then begin to learn about some of the issues in the world and what might happen to it and all the animals if we do not look after it. We will be learning about road safety, pollution, rubbish and recycling to help us answer our question. 


We had a letter from 2 very important people! They wanted us to think how we can all make the world a better place. 


We we're so excited to have a letter from Prince William and Sir David Attenborough that we quickly started thinking about how we can make the world a better place. Here are our initial ideas: 


The World 

We already know about where we live from our last project, so today we looked at our area and how our country looks and compared it to other parts of the world. 

We know that the world is different in different places and countries. 


Next we looked at some pictures of the world and discussed whether we thought it was good or bad and why. 




Today we discussed how we get to school and made a pictogram to show what we found out. 

We decided that the best way to get to school is to walk, go on a bike or scooter as they don't have engines so they are going to help us make our world a better place. 


Have a look at our pictograms to see what we found out:



We also talked about how to stay safe on the roads and we learnt a new song to help us remember! 

Have a listen at home and see if you can remember some of the lyrics and the actions too.
