You cannot have missed the high focus on ‘Climate Change and COP26 Conference’ in the media. It is probably the biggest single issue that everyone needs to get involved with. Next week, we will be holding some inspiring in-class assemblies using some interesting material from First News for KS2. You can view the material here. At Temple Meadow, we are already doing a lot to support taking care of our planet via our Perfect Planet Learning 4 Life strand; Forest School and through our Eco Committee work on our Green Flag as well as through our Geography, Science and at times English curriculum via the texts we use to engage learners. We have much deeper plans we want to roll out and it will be a feature of Temple Meadow school life underpinned by our values. I will be sharing a lot of information on this as we move through this half term.
Next week, Eco Committee has a challenge that I have set for them, linked to recycling. They will be documenting the challenge and feeding back during this term. During Star assembly today when I visited Y4 it was so lovely to hear how Mrs Collins' STAR spoke about his understanding of global warming. What we are aiming to do as we travel on our ‘Planet Friendly’ agenda is to ensure children feel empowered to make local changes that support improving our world and making it future-proof for this generation.
