Week commencing 16.11.20
White Rose- Statistics
Have a look at this table for endangered animals. Research each animal and once you have done so, create a poster expressing why we should save the animal. You can choose your own endangered animal if you like!
Continuing with the topic of the Andes, we are going to be creating a piece of writing describing the diverse landscape that the Andes offers.
The climate of the Andes is very diverse climate. Every region has its own type of climate. However, in general it has a high mountain climate. The northern part of the Andes is rainy and warm. The southern part is rainy and cold and the central part is very dry.
North - Venezuela and Columbia
Central - Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia
South - Chile and Argentina
I would like you to create a piece of writing comparing the different parts of the Andes. Think about strong vocabulary you could use. E.g.
The warm, humid weather of Columbia turned to drips of rain as quick as a flash. The hot air hugged the tress which wished for more rain to fall upon them.
This is in contrast to the extremely desolate region of Ecuador (which is extremely dry). Cracks in the earth show how the floor has been begging for food for quite some time.
However, despite the warm air in the north and centre, cold air swarms the mountain peaks with water running down the side of the landscape, right down to the bottom of the Andes.
Look at images to help you and to give you a feel of what the Andes was like in each country.
