Climate Clever

Year 5 and Year 6 have been involved in the 'Climate Clever' project. They have been investigating power and working out how to reduce electricity consumption within the school.

When the students conducted a school energy audit, they found out that lights, computers and the IWBs are often left on during the day. The students discussed the idea of designing posters to remind students and teachers to turn appliances off when they are not in use. Jeff 'Joffa' Taylor came out to the school and ran workshops with the students about climate change and poster designs.
