Hope Valley Climate Action Visit

With Climate Change at the forefront of everyone’s minds and young inspirational speakers like Greta Thunberg capturing the interest of the pupils, the school were pleased to invite Ghazala and Steve from Hope Valley Climate Action in to the classroom to discuss their experiences with our Year 4,5 and 6 children. 

Ghazala shared her inspiring Antarctica trip with the children and allowed for lots of discussion about her first hand experiences as well as answering general climate change questions. The children followed this up with a card game activity that allowed them to think about the changes they could make at home and at school in order to reduce their carbon footprint! The children’s climate change pledges were written on their pledge card and taken home in order to remind themselves of the little changes they’d like to make.

The school looks forward to welcoming Ghazala and Steve back in the New Year to see how they’ve been getting on with their changes both at home and at school.

History

Stanage Class have really enjoyed their History Topic. Recently they studied Cave Art and discovered how the Stone Age people communicated. They all made a handprint, just like the ones found in pre-historic times.

Looking at the work of a Great Artist

Stanage Class worked in groups to create these pictures inspired by the painting ‘Swinging’ by Wassily Kandinsky.
