This baby rhino is saying: Don’t kill my mummy, I need her! – what else do you think the baby rhino could be saying?
Hello Y5! I hope your weekend is great. You will remember that your homework – for Tuesday – is to gather roughly 15 facts about Rhinos. We are taking part in the global project, called the Travelling Rhino Project. See the link on the side bar to your right. You can also click here for the main page and on the left side bar, you will find the names of the continents. We are of course on the continent of EUROPE. Look our for the EUROPE section and you will find our school’s link there. There is already work from Y5’s – from last year – to enjoy. We will be doing some work on rhinos as well and all our work will be added to the same link. MrS’s class will also join in with us, so we have partners working together with us on the project. Here are two power point presentations from two of our class friends. Sayna worked hard on hers over the holiday and it was emailed on the class blog’s email and Gurpreet shared her work yesterday. Have a look at their work – and the presentations of Y5 of last year – and enjoy fabulous work done by them.
We need to look after our precious animals and environment. We only have 1 earth and its inhabitants. On the rhino project page you will see statistics, which is alarmingly high! These beautiful animals get poached every day. It’s unbelievable how these poachers go about. The Chinese are after the horns and they pay these poachers massive amounts of money to kill these animals. They know how to find people who would LOVE to earn 1000’s of pounds – poor people, with not much money – who are willing to kill these animals for those ‘big’ money. We as humans are the only enemy these vulnerable animals have. It’s only us killing them – they don’t have other animals in the wild as enemies. So, we as humans, are the ‘baddies‘ and the ‘goodies‘ must help the rhinos. Let’s do our bit and make everyone aware of what is happening in our world. They only have US to help them. We NEED to help them, they can not help themselves. They can’t do it. You are a child, but doing what you are doing, you make other adults aware of what’s going on and we spread the word! – The ‘other adults‘ are your parents, family, their friends, etc. etc. etc.
Enjoy the presentations of Sayna and Gurpreet. Their work is now also on the rhino project page.
If you haven’t watched this video on this link, please make sure you make time to watch this clip of about 4 minutes, it’s worth seeing how people in our world DO care for our precious rhinos. The baby was left orphaned after the mother was poached and killed. How sad! The baby had a gunshot in her head and she – luckily – got better.
Please make sure you watch this awesome video about this baby rhino on this link.
