Year 4 children are revolting!

As part of their autumn inquiry project, the Year 4 children have been learning about a range of environmental issues affecting our planet. Inspired by the work of individuals such as Greta Thunberg, they organised a public demonstration to campaign for Air Balloon to become a greener and eco-friendlier school. This also allowed them to learn about our democratic right to protest in a safe, kind and respectful way.

On Friday 6th December, they gathered in the top playground before a crowd of parents and carers and shared their messages and demands through campaign posters, a dance, chants and songs and a series of speeches. Their demands were:

  • Planting more trees on the school grounds
  • Meat-free Mondays
  • Reduce the amount of paper the school uses
  • Eliminate single-use plastic at break times

Their messages were intelligently researched and so articulately conveyed that it was easy to support their demands with the following pledges:

  • We will work with the woodland trust to see where we can plant more trees in school.
  • The school kitchen will work with Year 4 to design meat-free menus that can be trialled later on in the year.
  • School display boards will be replaced with hessian backgrounds to eliminate the need for paper displays.
  • To support long-term change – such as single-use plastic across the school – we will create a new community eco-group where staff, children and parents will work together on the necessary environmental changes across the school.

The children should feel immensely proud that their hard work and passion for environmental issues has resulted in real change for the school. Thanks to all the children and staff who made their demonstration such a success. Thanks as well to the parents and carers who came along to offer their support and for our community beat officer who also attended, commenting that the children’s demonstration seemed far more organised and peaceful than some of the recent protests that have taken place across the city! Well done, children.
