Saving the planet has been on the timetable for pupils at a Horsham primary school this summer.
Inspired by the global Earthshot Prize pupils at All Saints School have been learning about environmental issues and how we should all Be the Change when it comes to caring for the planet.Launched by Prince William and David Attenborough the Earthshot Prize has been designed to find and grow the solutions needed to repair the planet over the coming decade.Classes built on the launch day by exploring key Earthshot themes Years 1 and 2 protecting and restoring nature Years 3 and 4 building a waste free world and Years 5 and 6 how they can be the change by adopting different roles.
Families were invited to join pupils on the school field for the Earthshot Finale to share an afternoon packed with environmental awareness as well as some singing and dancing.Pupils also raised money for the schools charities by running class stalls of handmade goods including seed balls bird and butterfly feeders and woven baskets.Headteacher Susan Costa said This was a fantastic showcase of learning where the children showed that they know Its Up to Us. Each class expressed their passion to protect and restore nature build a waste free world and how we can all be the change reduce reuse recycle and more. They explained how the planet is in danger and gave practical ideas of the small changes we can all make.
