What is causing global warming?

08 December 2017

In topic this term, the Eagles have been studying the impact of global warming around the world from an increase in the number of bushfires in Australia to the rapid melting of glaciers in Greenland. After learning about these impacts, we went on to question – why is this happening? This led into learning about the ‘Greenhouse Effect’.

Their final task this term has been to use online programming software called ‘Scratch’ to create their own animations designed to teach KS1 students the cause of global warming (the Greenhouse Effect). Scratch is a programmer that has been developed to help children “think creatively…and work collaboratively” using code to produce animation in a creative way.  

With the help of Scratch, the Eagles were excited with developing this project. This led to a whole range of animations being produced and designed in different ways to engage a young audience through the use of sound and motion.

The photos show them working hard on their Scratch global warming projects earlier this week.
