Working closely with Year 1, 5 and 6 teachers, Sustainable Science combined science, literacy, numeracy and learning outside the classroom as the children recreated flood plains and volcanoes in scientific experiments and replanted and tended the school’s vegetable plots.
After creating short plays about the impacts of natural and human-made disasters, the children put their learning to excellent use by writing poems, short stories and diary extracts around the themes of Planet Protectors. And they and their teachers celebrated their work at a special event for parents, carers and families – where they shared posters advertising their Planet Protector Top Tips!
“Our Year 6 children achieved incredible results in their literacy SATs this year – and I am sure that working with as creatives had a very positive impact on these results!” Headteacher
“I’ve loved every minute of it – and I’ve learned loads!” Year 6 Pupil
