Year 6 Earth Day

The Year 6 children had a brilliant Earth day to kick start our Autumn term topic. The children took part in activities related to our topic and they thought carefully about the impact we have on our planet. From dressing up in Earthly outfits, to creating artwork, watching bits of ‘Extinction’ which sums our topic up brilliantly and making pledges for the future - we have made learning about climate change fun and educational. The highlight of the day was a visit from Mrs Walder-Davis who, along with her family, made one change a day in 2019 to help reduce their carbon footprint. She shared some incredible facts with the children and gave some very achievable ways in which children (and their families) can help our environment. A huge thank you to Mrs Walder-Davis and to all parents who have helped with costume creations. We would also like to take this time to thank Mrs Stacey who came and visited Year 6 on Friday to talk about emissions. She gave us more information on the different types of energy and how we can work to decrease our own emissions. We are so lucky to have many parents who work so closely with elements of our topic and who can come in and share what they know with the children
