Climate Change

The children throughout the school looked at the issues with climate change in a Global Learning afternoon this week. The older children in Hawthorn looked at how CO2 emissions are causing different foods across the world to be affected, with changeable weather patterns and seasons. Each child made a promise to ‘Share the Love’ and reduce the amount of CO2 they were responsible for. Some pledged to walk more or turn off the lights when not in a room. They also painted endangered species from around the world in a pointillism style (small spots).

Larch class also explored how CO2 is affecting plants and nature, whilst the children in Lime witnessed first-hand what is happening to the ice at the Arctic with their own melting ice model.
