Today is Earth Day. As well as learning more about this at our assembly (see our other post) we did a live lesson this morning with a story teller who told the story of the gigantic mafumeira tree in the tropical rainforest in Brazil. We learned about deforestation and thought about things we could do to look after our planet. A lot of the things we have already started doing in our Eco Group and in the school.
In our assembly today we learned that the UNCRC want to give advice around the world on Children’s Rights and the Environment. They are going to write a General Comment which they will share with governments everywhere. It will explain what governments around the world must do to make sure that children and young people live in a clean, green, healthy and sustainable world. But they want to hear what children have to say about it before they write it. To do this they have created a form which we have put on Google Classroom for everyone to fill in.
There’s a link here too.
We’ve been busy this afternoon
- Planted our seed potatoes
- Set up the compost bin
- Planted nastursiums
- Filled the bird feeders
- Got a new raised bed ready for courgettes
They gave us loads of compost. We’re really gonna need it in our polytunnel and our raised beds. Thanks Loch-Hills
