Year 6 Climate Change Summit

This week saw each Y6 class meet to present information about a specific biome they have studied and suggest ways in which we can help to protect it.

  • Year 6 Climate Change Summit 4
  • Year 6 Climate Change Summit 3
  • Year 6 Climate Change Summit 2
  • Year 6 Climate Change Summit 1

Each class has spent several weeks learning about the different biomes around the world, finally focusing on one specific biome: Marine, Forest, Rainforest, Tundra, Desert, Antarctic and Savannah. The children taught us about animals and plants that live in this biome and then explained the threats to the ecological structure and effect these have on the plants and animals. Many of the threats also contribute to global warming, leading to climate change, which then adversely affects the environments further.

The children presented a variety of ideas and solutions that individuals can do to help. Ideas included: avoid using plastic, recycle when possible, use a bike or walk to school, encourage your parents to buy a hybrid car, use less electricity – turn the lights/aircon off when you don’t need it, turn water off whilst brushing your teeth and limit your use of electronics.

If everybody helps in a small way, then we can make a big difference. Ms Deborah Spencer

The most important message was to talk to people about what we found out and share this knowledge and understanding, encouraging others to help too.

The children did a fabulous job presenting the information and every child in the year group contributed to the presentations in some way. They should all be hugely proud of their achievements.

Finally, we would like everyone to remember;

If everybody helps in a small way, then we can make a big difference.
