Scafell have been exploring the subject of climate change and the impact of human activity on the planet. As part of the United Nations World Environment Day on June 5th, children in years 5+6 took the mask challenge – this was a social media campaign to design and make creative masks related to this year’s theme on air pollution and make a pledge to change one aspect of your life to help reduce our carbon footprint.
Here are some of our fabulous creations and promises to change.
We have also created amazing speeches inspired by Greta Thunberg, the 15year old Swedish activist; wrote persuasive poems encouraging people to do more to protect our planet; led assemblies to raise awareness with the rest of the school and our parents; and considered what more we could do as a school to be more environmentally friendly.
One change we will be making soon is reducing the amount of plastic use in our school by changing how our system for supplying milk for our infant children.
