Moja Island Renewable Energy

This afternoon we worked in groups to find out a bit more about the different types of renewable energy and what are the best ones to use in different environments.
The children were scientists and had to work out what would be the best energies to use in their villages on Moja Island. We had lots of great discussions and group work.

This afternoon we found out about chemical reactions with acid and alkalines. We used coloured water, oil, bicarbonate and citric acid (see a similar recipe below). They looked great!

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! πŸ˜†

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.

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!
