Y4 – Wednesday 1st July – English – Home Learning

Today’s task is to plan a persuasive text about deforestation using the research you did yesterday. Below is an example of the text you are aiming to write.

Deforestation of the Amazon rainforest

The Amazon rainforest is the largest rainforest in the world. However, at the rate it is currently being cut down, this will not last much longer. Deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest affects all living things on Earth and unless it is stopped or limited, there will be serious consequences in the future.

Firstly, deforestation causes devastating loss to animal and plant life. Cutting down the enormous Amazon trees means that animal habitats are destroyed and plants are crushed. This is leading to many animals becoming endangered and extinct – each year, many animal and plant species are becoming extinct. Can you really imagine a world without certain species of animals?

Secondly, deforestation is causing climate change and global warming to worsen. The Amazon rainforest is described as the lungs of the Earth, but if we are cutting down these lungs, they won’t be able to breathe in many of the harmful gases that cause climate change and global warming. Surely someone as smart as you knows that if we carry on cutting down trees, that the Earth will become a place where no life will be able to survive!

Finally, deforestation is cutting the supply of oxygen to all living things. The Amazon rainforest is responsible for 20% of all oxygen produced on Earth. We are carelessly killing the Amazon and at the same time, killing ourselves! Deforestation means there are fewer trees available to absorb carbon dioxide and release vital oxygen needed for all living things to stay alive. It is like we are slowly suffocating ourselves and nobody cares!

You must do something to prevent the changes that have already started because of deforestation. Animals are becoming endangered and extinct, climate change and global warming is getting worse and the amount of oxygen on Earth is decreasing. If these aren’t reasons to act now, then the future of mankind and all living things is in great danger.

Task: Use the example to plan your own persuasive text about deforestation on this form.

  1. STOP DEFORESTATION!!!!
    THE MORE YOU CUT DOWN TREES THE MORE THE ANIMALS DIE AND THERE WILL BE NO OXYGEN!!!!!!!!
    Deforestation
    Deforestation is when people cut down trees.This can include clearing the land for agriculture or grazing, or using the timber for fuel, construction or manufacturing.

    • A good start Arina, but this is not the the whole task you need to do the plan please. So use the subheading on the plans and complete a plan.

  2. The Amazon rainforest
    Interdiction
    As you know it rainforest are coming to a end and we need to stop cutting trees . Trees are important they take in cabindiroxside but when we cut trees that co2 gets out in the air it’s not good though it traps the heat of the sun like a box anything on that surferse is boiling hot it also effects the so mate making it change . If we don’t fixed this in 100 years all of life will be exstinced like the dinosaurs how can we stop this ?
    Well as can plant more trees to stop this threat .

    • A good start Sammi, but this is not the the whole task you need to do the plan please. So use the subheading on the plans and complete a plan.

  3. DEFORESTATION IS A DANGER TO THE 🌎WORLD!!!!
    Deforestation is when trees are cut down. The Amazon rainforest is the largest rainforest with all the 🌳trees being cut down it will no longer be the largest rainforest.

    Is deforestation good?
    Without trees there is no paper, no newspaper, no magazines, no furniture.How can we live without these? If we have no sofa so what can we sit on.If we have no paper so what can we write on.This is the only reason we can do these thing is with cutting trees.

    Is deforestation bad?
    Deforestation is bad because it kills animals and their homes. Imagine your home was destroyed how would you feel ?Animals and plants are becoming extinct.Trees his is oxygen without trees there is no us.

    As a conclusion, I believe that deforestation is bad.

  4. Title
    How deforestation Impacts the world
    Induction
    Forest covers 30% of our planet an is essential for life earth is really important. However deforestation is happening and effecting all living things . If we do not stop they’re will be major consequences.
    Argument 1
    Firstly cutting down rainforest trees has a major impact on animal habitats . This means animals are becoming endangered or extinct . How would you feel if someone destroyed your home and you needed to find somewhere else to live .
    Global warming and climate change are getting worse as when they are cut down , all the stored carbon dioxide releases into the atmosphere , for a fact 24% of global warming is caused by this . Do you like the fact deforestation is causing problems for our world .
    Argument 2
    Secondly , it is estimated that 4 – 6 rainforest species go extinct eachyear .
    Also it affects 2 billion people that rely on the forest for food and shelter.
    Argument 3
    The main reason for deforestation is agriculture (farming) . The farmers crops down trees for crops (soy bean , palm trees and coca . ) They also raise life stock like cows for beef .
    Conclusion
    I think deforestation should slow down and rate trees grown mabye some gets cut down to keep the world world going mabye try to relocate animals to keep them safe .
    (Thank you ! )

  5. Defrosetation
    In 100 years there will probably be no rainforest.
    When we stared to build cities there was 60% of land and there were loads of forest but know there only 10% of forest because people keep on cutting trees.
    People are cutting down trees for paper and other things that are made out of wood.
    And another fact people have cut down w0 footballs fields.
    The rainforest pis home to plant animals and if people carry on cutting down trees there will be no animals either because the animals need forests.
    Did you know that 15. Billion trees are cut down every single year. And cutting down trees can cause another effect it that the climate change will change.

    • A good start Asilah, this is not the the whole task though, you need to do the plan please. So use the subheading on the plans and complete a plan.

  6. Title- Help our world from deforestation.
    Introduction
    The forests cover over a quarter of our planet. One of the main forest is the Amazon rainforest. Unfortunately it’s in a constant battle with humans that cut or burn the trees this is known as deforestation. This affects all life on earth and if not stopped or slow down this will have major consequences.
    Argument 1
    Forest provide habitats for over 80% of plants and animals that live on land but deforestation destroys this. Would you you like it if someone took your home and you couldn’t find a new one.
    Argument 2
    One of the reason why deforestation takes place is for material things we use in our every day lives for example fuel,paper,wood,and buildings another reason is creating room for cattle ranching or just to make more land for housing.
    Argument 3
    Deforestation impacts the amount of green gases relished into the atmosphere in 2 ways first when trees fall they realise carbon dioxide they store into the atmosphere. Secondly trees play a critical role in abstoring green house gases that fuel global warming . Do you think this is the night thing to do to our planet.
    Conclusion
    I’m neither for or against because we need fuel and some one rescued and moved animals into the world it will be a better place.

  7. Deforestation
    The Amazon rainforest trees being cut down will bring negative effective in our future
    Cutting down trees will cause the life of plant and animals to extinct
    Cutting down trees will in crease oxygen dioxide de creases oxygen which will cause harm our health
    This will also cause glowball warming which will affect many living being and 20 refused the 200% oxygen we get conclusion
    Therefore we also of you to stop cutting down trees as it will cause more harm than benefits

  8. Deforestation of the Amazon rainforest
    The Amazon rainforest is the biggest rainforest in the world but people keep on cutting down trees. However Oxygen comes from trees and that means we are slowly suffucating from people cutting down trees. Amazon trees mean that animal habitats are destroyed and plants are crushed. This is leading to animals becoming extinct. It is like no one cares about animals or ourselves suffucating.

  9. Deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest
    Introduction
    As we all know the Amazon Rainforest there has been alot of deforestation and lots of greenery destroyed. The Amazon rainforest
    is the biggest rainforest in the world and it is provided very less greenery.

    Argument 1
    People don’t care and global warnings and climate change are getting worse we are taking animals homes and they are helping us.

    Argument 2
    we are getting less oxygen and so are you so maybe you should stop cutting tress and all the other greenery out there.

    Point 1
    There is alot of stuff happening in the Amazon rainforest as deforestation and many other stuff

    Conclusion
    There is alot of deforestation and we need to stop killing our self this will become a much bigger problem when you think.

  10. Introduction
    The amazon rainforest is the largest rainforest which is being cut down right now. People are cutting trees and animals live in the Amazon rainforest mostly and those animals are loosing there homes because of the people are cutting down the trees uncaringly. Deforestation affects most a lot of animals will lose habitats and will be extinct species.
    A lot of palm oil is from trees.
    Argument 1
    We need wood for houses and other stuff so we need to cut down the trees and trees do nothing for us all they do is just stand around and just wave there soggy leaves.
    Argument 2
    In my opinion we need trees they are helpful in life. They give oxygen and help us with palm oil. So STOP Cutting Trees DOWN.
    Conclusion
    We can stop this by not cutting Down the trees and not burning them down and forgetting about they are burning. The reason I don’t want tree so to be burn or cut is because If we burn them we loose wood and also trees give fruits like apples and other kinds. But people have excuses to cut trees because trees give furniture. Trees are important because they give us medicines and protect animals from getting endangered. Also trees help us to reduce air pollution. They give us oxygen and store carbon and if you cut down the trees they release the carbon which means the green house gas will make the earth hotter however people have an excuse to cut down trees because wood can make shelter for some people.

  11. Deforestation
    Did you that four to six thousands rainforest species extinct every year because deforestation.The biggest rainforest in the world is the Amazon rainforest .The Amazon rainforest is very important like I said it is biggest rainforest in the world it won’t be anymore because of deforestation.
    Argument 1
    We should stop cutting all rainforests trees because animals are getting hurt because we keep on cutting there homes.
    How will it feel if someone cut down your house that’s we are doing to the animals .
    Argument 2
    In 100 years all rainforests will become deserts if we keep on cutting down the trees biggest desert will be called the Amazon desert .
    How it feel if all rainforests become deserts .
    Argument 3
    If we keep on cutting down trees all animals will be dead and they be no wilde life to live in .
    How will it feel if all rainforests animals were all dead and only animals were dogs and cats and there was no wilde life .
    We should plant new trees for the rainforest and stop cutting trees for 2 years .

    • Good effort Bolu!
      For your arguments 1 and 2 you need to back it up by providing three solid points.
      What is your conclusion going to be?

  12. Deforestation:
    Firstly, deforestation causes devastating loss to animal and plant life. Cutting down the enormous Amazon trees means that animal habitats are destroyed and plants are crushed. This is leading to many animals becoming endangered and extinct – each year, many animal and plant species are becoming extinct. Can you really imagine a world without certain species of animals?

  13. Deforestation in the Amazon rainforest

    Have you ever thought about how important forests are in life? Trees are everywhere in life. Your furniture, paper you write on, fruit you eat, even the air you breathe comes from trees.

    Firstly, we, as consumers rely heavily on trees and forests as resources, but forests are shrinking instead of growing, all because of deforestation. Deforestation is an important issue. It is a problem that stems from our misuse of resources. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, from 2000 to 2010, an estimated amount of 13 million hectares of forest were lost per year because of deforestation. And what do we do all this for? Benefits to companies, industrialization, expansion for factories. People see deforestation as a beneficial action, as they are gaining resources and clearing land for usage, but what people don’t understand is that cutting these trees affects us more than we believe.

    The disruption and destruction of forests also destabilizes oxygen sources and greenhouse gas emissions. Forests play an important role in both the containment of carbon dioxide and the purification of air through oxygen. The loss of forests makes up about six to twelve percent of annual global carbon dioxide emissions. When forests are cut down, carbon absorption stops, and the carbon already stored in the trees is released into the atmosphere. Deforestation also affects global climate change and global warming.

    Trees are our main way of storing carbon dioxide, but if we continue cutting trees down and allowing the carbon dioxide to escape into the air, the climate would change drastically, and global warming would most likely speed up.

  14. Argument 1
    Animal lost there home .

    Point 1
    Endangered species as a result of deforestation.
    Point 2
    Animal habitat are destroyed.
    Point 3
    Endangered by human.
    I have completed my work on the paper.
    These are the Augument on the paper.

  15. DEFORESTATION IN AMAZON RAIN FOREST
    We humans are cuting trees in the rainforests. Which means we are destroying thousands of animal habitats. Each year hundred thousands of animals are being extinct or endangered!

    We need to stop this now! OTHER WHISE WE WILL HAVE TO FACE A LOT OF HARD TIMES IN THE FUTURE! please stop this.

  16. TASK
    Introduction
    There is a beautiful forest out there that no-one recognises that is only because of one reason why chip the rain forest when you could die without it .why chop when you can save .Trees are something that are used much but chop too many and there will be consensus .All I am asking you to do is STOP chopping trees.
    Argument 1
    The rain forest provides humans about 20% of air in the whole world.
    Argumant 2
    There are many tribes that live in the rain forest.
    Argument 3
    The rain forest is important to everyone so please stop.

      • Argument 1
        The rain forest provides humans about 20% of air in the whole world.
        This helps us because we breath in air.
        Argumant 2
        There are many tribes that live in the rain forest.
        So if we chop tree we could destroy there homes and even kill them.
        Argument 3
        The rain forest is important to everyone so please stop.
        It there will be not much air in the world and many people will die.

    • deforestation
      have you ever wondered why people cut down trees
      well here’s an example to make paper but there are other ways like elephant poo
      argument 1

  17. The Amazon Rainforest Deforestation

    Introduction
    Amazon Rainforest in the largest rainforest in the world.
    Deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest affects all living things on Earth and unless it is stopped or limited, there will be serious consequences in the future.

    In my opinion deforestation causes devasting loss to animals and plants life. Cutting down the enonomus Amazon trees means that animals habitats are destroyed and plants are crushed.

    I feel sad that animals are affected by deforestation rainforest, I wish it can be helped and stopped.

    It is certain deforestation is causing climate change and global warming to worsen. The Amazon rainforest is described as the lungs of the Earth, but if we are cutting down these lungs, they won’t be able to breathe in many of the harmful gases that cause climate change and global warning.

    Argument 1
    The Amazon rainforest is responsible for 20% of all oxygen produced on Earth. Why are we careless killing the Amazon and at the same time, killing overselves.!

    Argument 2
    Cutting down trees, that the Earth will become a place where there be no life will be able to survive.

    Conclusion
    We must do something to prevent the changes that have already started because of deforestation. Animals are becoming endangered and extinct, climate changed and global warming is getting worse. No body cares about the changes of deforestation in rain forest we should be more careful and treat animals equal as humans give animals life to live.

    • Wow Qasim this is impressive! Well done! I think a majority of people do care about the changes of deforestation. What could we do to prevent deforestation happening, what could happen in the future?
