In English, we are loving reading When The Mountains Roared and this week we have been looking at the plight of the endangered snow leopards, so we can write a persuasive letter to the Indian government to ask for their support to help! It ties in nicely with our Geography topic too on mountains and how people learn to live with the wildlife and conditions in mountain communities.
We have been researching facts about snow leopards using various websites, along with watching footage of them out in the wild. The children have started planning their letters, using prepositional phrases and emotive language that would work in a letter. Here we are planning and discussing our fronted adverbials, using prepositions to describe where the snow leopards live.
