In line with COP26 happening this week on our very own home soil and what with this school being a massive promoter of being Eco friendly and learning for sustainability – it seemed only right we dedicated a whole afternoon on learning all about the purpose of COP26 this year and applying our own genius brains to solving the problem that is Climate Change!
We discussed what COP26 was and what we hoped the purpose of this weekend would be from all the nations involved. The boys and girls were very clued up from several inputs with Miss Whorlow and lot’s of Newsround.
We then watched this excellent video by BP Educational services, which not only highlighted the damage that climate change is doing, but showed us all the inspirational things that are happening all over the world in a bid to start tackling this issue and to reach that Net-Zero goal for our carbon emissions.
This got us inspired and we split off into small groups to make our own posters which showed the different ways we thought our own community could move towards being net-zero!
We are lucky at Kirkcolm to have such caring and eco-aware pupils that truly care about their environment and the world around them and they really showcased these skills today!
