This year we celebrated Wear it Wild Day again in association with WWF. We raised money to help endangered animals all across the globe. We came to school dressed as our favourite wild animals.
Some of us didn’t know what endangered meant so we used the WWF website to help us and we learnt about some animals.
Endangered means when a species of animal is at serious risk of being made extinct.
Did you know that these animals were endangered?
- Giant Panda
- Borneo Orang-utan
- Emperor Penguin
- Black Rhinoceros
- Polar Bear
- Snow Leopard
We also linked this to the work that we continue throughout school linked to the 17 Global Goals. Click here to read our post about The World’s Largest Lesson and a little bit more on what the Global Goals are. We learnt that the work we have done link to the Global Goals 14 and 15.
We researched using fact sheets about these endangered animals to help us to learn more and then create posters to make people aware of the dangers these animals face.
Akram – We need to look after these animals before they are gone forever.
Alfie – We don’t want them to go the same way as the dinosaurs!
Oliver – Animals find it difficult in nature to survive if they haven’t got enough food or water or shelter.
Dannilou – Our money will help lots of animals forever!
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who donated money to this worthy cause. The children in Pearl class loved coming to school dressed as their favourite animal.
