L.C. To explain the meaning of key vocabulary within the context of the text.


Today we are going to use our reading skills to understand the meaning of key vocabulary within a given text. 


If we find a word that we are unsure of in a text, what can we do to help us understand the meaning?



  • Re-read the sentence again
  • Read around the word to help us get an idea
  • Use a dictionary
  • Ask your talk partner
  • Ask an adult



How is the climate getting warmer?


It is a proven fact that the Earth's average temperature has increased about 1°C over the past 100 years between the 1900s and 2000s. It may not sound like a big change, but it is a quicker increase than at any other time in history and it will influence Earth and its people and wildlife. The changing climate will actually make our weather more extreme and unpredictable. As temperatures rise, some areas will get wetter and lots of animals and human population could find they’re not able to adapt to their changing climate. We are already seeing examples of unpredictable weather, for example the increasing frequency of flooding in the UK (which causes damage to homes) and increase of intensity and duration of bush fires in California, USA and in New South Wales, Australia.
