In September-October 2018,  Upper Key Stage 2 children were given the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the tropical and temperate rainforests and where they are situated in the world in relation to the equator. This was completed through map work and exploring the different types of rainforests across the world.  They explored the varying layers of a rainforest and the living things which inhabit each area, including the indigenous people. After this, the children investigated SDG 15, “Life on Land”, learning about deforestation and how forests are being destroyed in order to make the land available for other things. This included burning forests, destroying the places where plants and wildlife live, and reducing biodiversity.  In addition, they also discussed how climate change is affecting rainforest depletion, the small steps we can do to make a change and how we can convey this message to others.
