Aim: To encourage families to take simple steps to look after our planet.

 

On Monday 25th October, BBC Bitesize will launch The Regenerators, an ambitious new initiative that will educate and inspire children, young people and families to take simple steps to build a greener future. We know that climate change is the number one concern of young people today, so we are here to equip you with the skills needed to create change and influence others to look after our planet and the world around us. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zppx2v4

 

Families will be treated to a series of videos and articles that include simple and practical ideas that you can try at home to help save money and live well.

Homework

Friday 15th October due in Wednesday 20th October

As a school, we are finding out more about COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, which is being held between October 31st and November 12th 2021. Our aim is to raise awareness of the conference and encourage our pupils to become ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the wider world. This will be achieved by educating all pupils on Global Goal 13, taking personal small steps to tackle climate change whilst learning about the climate change issues that affect our link country, Bangladesh. We have a link school n Bangladesh and we are completing a shared project where pupils in both schools find out about the impact of climate change in both countries especially thinking about flooding and steps taken to prevent this.

 

Task: research flooding in Bangladesh and look at the steps they take to tackle flooding by using the following websites. How does this compare to climate change issues in Wales? Record your findings as a report. You can complete your work on a computer and use images of the internet to support your research.

Homework

Thursday 30th September due in Wednesday 6th October

 

Homework Book Assignment: Next week we will begin our next RE Come and See Topic called LIFE CHOICES. We will be learning about the Sacraments. As part of our learning we will make links to show how feelings and beliefs affect their own and others’ behaviour in relationships.

Task 1: write a character study of your ideal friend, explain why they might be committed, loyal and faithful, and what influences them. You can then draw a picture of your ‘ideal friend.’

 

Task 2: Next week we have the opportunity to take part in a mass about 'Being God's People.' We would like you to donate some food or toiletries to show how we are being 'God's People.' 

We have been inspired by work of St Vincent de Paul and his compassion towards the poor. We want to work together to help shape a more just and compassionate society. We want to raise awareness for those people who are living in poverty and experiencing disadvantage.

 

In Cardiff over 80,000 people live below the poverty line. 18,000 are children. Cardiff food bank offers food and support to these people.

Throughout the month of October, we will be collecting donations for the Cardiff Food Bank. Food banks are in desperate need of the following items: Milk, fruit juice, sponge pudding, jars of coffee, savoury snacks, rice pudding, shampoo, deodorant & toothpaste. We would like to thank you in advance for any donations we receive.
