Yesterday, the whole school was very excited. Some of the staff from the Eden Project in Cornwall had travelled to our school to show us some of the great work they are doing. In the morning, a fantastic assmebly taught us about the Eden porject, and it's role in protecting our environemnt.
Following this, as part of the Eco-warriors topic, Year 3 took park in sessions to explore the environemtn further, and what we can do to help protect it.
Year 5 also took part in sessions, which involved developing our collaboration to make shelters in the garden. We explorer the environment looking for suitable materials, aiming to take as little as possible and use the existing landscape to help us. Although some shelters were not storm proof, we learnt from our mistakes. Later, we made our own candles using only materials which have grown in the ground. Everyone was successful, and was able to light their candle.
We all had a great day. Thank you to the Eden Project and Dunelm who provided us with such a great oppurtunity.
