What we are learning this term:
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:
Their messages were intelligently researched and so articulately conveyed that it was easy to support their demands with the following pledges:
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.
