Year 6 IPC Entry Point – What a Wonderful World

This week Year 6 began their new International Primary Curriculum topic, ‘What a Wonderful World’.

All the children were hurried into the gym as a Typhoon warning was issued. Once there, they discussed what we might do in a typhoon and how we could create an action plan for a Typhoon. The children formed small working parties to develop their ideas and create information posters to ensure that the school community knows what to do in this situation.

We then watched David Attenborough tell us all about how we need to act now to help prevent climate change in preparation for our work on how this is affecting different biomes around the world. We will look at extreme weather around the world, how biomes support different life and how these are being affected by climate change and other issues created by man-kind (such as pollution). Each class in Year 6 will adopt a biome, investigate this in more detail, identifying plants and animals within it and the threats to it and their survival. They will create a presentation for our ‘Change the World’ summit to vie for funding to help repair damage already done and to prevent future damage.

The topic will enable the children to gain a deeper understanding of a specific ecological environment and link this to our Science topic, ‘Classification of Animals’. The children will work collaboratively in small groups and then as a whole class to present their findings in our exit point. They will demonstrate a greater understanding of what it means to be a global citizen and how they can help to make the world a better place for future generations.
