David Shepherd visit RSM for World Wildlife Day……
Last Friday, Years 3 to 6 enjoyed a workshop from Jo Elphick of the David Shepherd Foundation. She talked to them about what the charity do and the dangers faced by many animals around the world. Following this, the year 3 and 4 children worked on a piece of art which involved using tissue paper to print a background and then decorating an endangered animal to go on top. The children thoroughly enjoyed a messy morning of animal based art. Year 5 and 6 considered questions about who and what were threatening their lives and environments and what we at St Mary’s can do to support the Foundation.They learnt about animal habitats and how endangered some of these wonderful creatures are.Then they had the opportunity to create a 3D habitat dome which focussed on each animal’s natural setting. They were able to tie this in with their topic on Africa and added some of their creations to the lovely display board they have in their classroom.
Thank you to the David Shepherd Foundation for a wonderful day.
Make Earth Hour Matter
Saturday 25 March 2017 at 8.30 pm
WWF’s Earth Hour is an annual global celebration where people switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet. It’s been the hottest year on record for the third year in a row and nearly 1 in 6 species are now at risk of extinction from climate change. Earth Hour is a global movement, which brings millions together across the world to call for greater action. Last year a record 178 countries took part – a number that rises every year. From the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle, cities, towns and communities like yours across the world switch out their lights and come together for an hour, to join a global show of support for action on climate. Sign up, switch off your lights and show you want action on climate change
