Our World Now and Then
On May 23rd Elm Class travelled to Coleshill for this year's Earth Summit.
This event, which involves the National Trust, Swindon Borough Council, Thames Water and Westmill Wind Farm is an opportunity for year 5 classes to discover more about many issues that impact on our environment.
The session began with presentations from the schools attending on various environmental facts as they apply to their school.
We then split into 3 groups to take part in various workshops. Different groups did different sets of 4, but in total our groups looked at:
- Fast Fashion
- Water Matters
- The Low Carbon Village Project
- Sustainable Energy
- Food: Coleshill Organics
- Watermill Energy
- Single Use Plastic
- Bio Diversity
- Soils and Composting
It was a very thought provoking and informative day.
