In our assemblies today we talked about what we can do to take care of our local environment and our planet. Year 1 & 2 had great ideas for things we can all do…
- Reusable water bottles and shopping bags
- Don’t drop litter
- Pick up litter (but check with an adult if it looks dirty or dangerous)
- Say no to plastic straws
- Use a compost bin and water butts in gardens
- Don’t waste water
- Save your leftovers at dinner time
- Separate your recycling
- Respect all wildlife
In the KS2 assembly we took things further. We watched the full speech Greta Thunberg gave at the United Nations (UN). Greta became famous at age 15 for protesting in Sweden. Recently she traveled to America and gave a well researched, passionate and persuasive speech to world leaders, demanding they do more to tackle climate change and take care of Earth for future generations.
We were all inspired to talk to our school council representatives about what we think Lawford Mead should do to make change for the better. Almost all school council ‘reps’ have been voted in now. They are ready to listen and discuss your ideas in their first meeting with Miss Abbott.
