Stewardship of God's Creation- Are we caretakers or owners of the Earth?
Our question for this term of ‘Are we caretakers or owners of the earth?’ will be explored through the Catholic Social Teaching lense of Stewardship of God’s Creation across the curriculum.
In science we will explore this through looking at the natural world as we study animals and living things. We will be turning to the outdoors to investigate different animals and how each living thing serves a purpose in the world. As scientists we will conduct a range of tests and gather, record, classify and present data to help answer questions. We will be using forest school throughout this half term so be ready to bring your wellies to school!
Across the curriculum we will be investigating how we can protect the Earth from climate change and what we can do as stewards to help.
Within geography we will study the different countries and the cultures across Europe. We will be exploring which countries are helping us to fight against climate change and which countries are the most effected by the current changes within the world. Our earth is a wonderous place, and we will study the natural processes that occur on our earth and how this may impact God’s creation.
Children will also be encouraged to share their own ideas or experiences throughout this, allowing them to build curious minds. Throughout this study we will be continually building upon our skills and knowledge. The children will continue to answer CST Big Questions to allow them to reflect and think deeply about the creation of our earth.
