In our geography and history lessons this half term, we have been discussing climate change and the impact it is having on the world.
During history this week, we read a book about Greta Thunberg and her response to it. In Sweden, at the age of 15 she made a large sign reading ‘SCHOOL STRIKE FOR CLIMATE’ and calmly sat in front of the Swedish parliament to get politicians to take notice and act to stop global warming. Since then she has appeared in the EU parliament and the UK parliament.
As a result of learning about Greta, we started our own ‘Strike for Climate’ campaign. We made our own signs and marched around the school field before sitting peacefully and displaying our signs to show the children what the experience could have felt like.
Once we returned to class, we then discussed things we could do to help climate change such as turning off lights when you leave a room, reusing and recycling. At Lambs Lane, recycling remains crucial and we are continuing to support ‘The Colgate Oral Care Recycling Programme’ and ‘The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme’ through Terracycle, and we recycle plastic, cardboard and paper with Biffa.
