Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Climate Ready Classroom


Today the whole school participated with Climate Ready Classrooms as part of our ongoing commitment to being an eco-friendly school and promoting eco awareness within the school! This whole day event allowed pupils to take part in numerous online live lessons with accompany activities while learning about Climate Change and the effects this is having on the planet. 

The first part of the morning taught us what Climate Change is and how it is caused by different factors in the environment. Pupils went on a hunt around the school looking for causes of emissions and how these emissions can be caused in numerous ways. 

The second half of the morning looked at the effects of Climate Change on biodiversity – we saw real time example of the Great Tit – happening in our own eco systems as a result of the negative impact of climate change. Pupils then went outside on a scavenger hunt looking for a different items in the playground that could ’cause emissions’ or ‘produce waste’. 

Finally the afternoon focused on drawing up our eco plan to solve the effects of climate change on the environment. This will be streamlined into a whole school approach and sent to the Climate Ready Classrooms team as Kirkcolm Primary’s actions! 

Overall – this was such a fun day in which pupils were able to gain an awareness and knowledge of issues surrounding sustainability!
