Our young Climate warriors. age 5-6., were introduced to this Climate Action project, through a hand puppet Orangutan and listened to the story about deforestation in his home in Borneo.
They learnt about the Orangutan we've adopted and how trees are being cut down and planted with Palm Oil trees. They learnt about the animals in these rainforests that are endangered because of the loss of the Rain forest.
They felt very sad about the loss of trees and animals.
Year 5 & 6 Global councillors at Folkestone St Mary's CEP U.K thought about all the problems that occur with Deforestation, having written a list of these, they then made a short video. This is a group with some special education needs.
Our youngest group of Global Councillors (5-6 years with learning difficulties) have been reading the story of the 'Wild Tree House of Borneo" They learnt that our adopted school Orangutan called Zorro, lost his home & parents due to Deforestation. Using an Orangutan hand puppet and the face masks they made, they have made short video of the need to save our Rain Forests.
9 & 10 years share their views about our adopted school Orangutan as part of our work on the effects of deforestation.
We've planted a Dogwood Tree for our partner school in Banlgadesh this term.
We've planted over 400 trees in the past 4 years. We've ann Oak tree for Tunisia and our partners in Malaysia and a Silver Birch for our Finnish partner.
We've measured the height and the girth of these trees.
Tunisia have planted an Olive Tree for us.
