And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28
At St Michael's Church School, we know it is massively important to preserve and protect God's world. We know it important to make a difference in our school, in order to make a difference in the world. We know that small changes can make a big difference for our community and so we can continue living well together.
In order to do this, we hold special themed weeks to focus on different aspects of God's wonderful world. This includes a 'Science Week' and we have looked in more detail at different themes including Global Warming, Plastic Pollution, Renewable Energy and Ice Pole collapses.
Our children have protested, written debates and shared ideas about how we can improve the school community and thereby preserve and protect the world.
Here is a link to our Science Week page for evidence of our children sharing their voice.
Here are some examples of our children's Global Warming posters. These were made a warning poster to make a change now as later may be too late.
Below you will also see our children on specially adapted bikes that can record how much renewable energy can be made from riding a bike. The children were challenged to see if they could make enough energy to provide heat, light and electricity for 24 hours. It proved to be a very difficult and unsustainable task, but the children learnt about how important it is to keep switching off lights, closing doors, turning off computers and laptops and ensuring the classroom thermostat is not set too high, so we do not waste too much energy in school through heat and electricity.
