Bush Tucker Trial!

This afternoon we were talking about solutions to climate change and one of the things we can do is look at the types of food that we eat. A lot of people around the world eat insects, and they are full of protein and low impact on the environment. You can see from their faces what the P6/7 s thought of that! ๐Ÿ˜†

Mr Leslie Scholland Farm

Today Mr Leslie came in to speak to the P4/5/6 and P6/7 class. We have all been finding out about Climate Science and he wanted to tell us about the approach by Scholland farm to climate friendly farming. He told us about the way that they feed the animals and fertilise the ground. Mr Leslie also talked about best practice in beef farming techniques. All of the Scholland Farm beef is sold locally – reducing the carbon footprint.
Thank you for coming in to talk to us and answer our questions.

Game design

This afternoon we had a fantastic game design session with Emma Chittick. We used arcade.makecode.com to design our own game. It was quite hard to follow the instructions but everyone managed to make their own game. They looked really good.

Conservation Volunteers Part 2!

This afternoon the P7s went out to plant trees, while the P6s were at Bikeability. It was a beautiful afternoon, perfect for outdoor learning. To begin with Ms Scanlan showed the P7s how to plant a tree and then the P7s worked in pairs / groups to plant as many trees as they could. After Bikeability the P6s joined us and in total we planted 38 trees. Fantastic for helping the fight against climate change. Well done!

Clarence the Climate Clatterer

Neil Bratchpeice, Sarah-Jayne Judge and Alba Abad Fernandez came into school this afternoon to run a comic book session. Neil and Sarah-Jayne explained some of the features of developing a character and the children gave Neil their ideas for our very own class character. It was amazing to see what Neil created for us. We also had a chance to draw a cartoon of our own, which we will finish next week.
