On Friday 11th June, Dobwalls Primary School, took part in Cornwall’s Climate Action Day during the G7 visit to Cornwall. 

Throughout the school, a range of exciting activities took place to develop the children’s understanding of climate issues, both caring for our world locally and the wider world. 

The youngest children in Early Years learnt about caring for our planet and looked specifically at seals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary with Year One learning about koalas.  Year Two read the story ‘Duffy’ and wrote a song about how damaging plastic can be.  Year Three explored ideas for reducing the carbon footprint on feet!  In Year Four, they spent time talking about the damage of plastic in the oceans and have written poems (see below).  Year Six created a chant to support climate action ideas.  Year Five went for a litter pick around Dobwalls and collected 6 bags in under an hour! 

Mrs Pipe, Head teacher, said, “I am very proud of how thoughtful and eager our children have been to learn and care for our world with such an important current issue. We awarded Eco-Star certificates in every class!”

Year 4 Poems

Horrendous, Terrible
Killing, Destroying, Suffocating
Please Stop Killing Animals

Don’t buy plastic then throw it away, make it into something then it will make the sea creatures day!

Bye bye plastic,
Bottles, straws and elastic,
You are not fantastic,
Cans, bags and plastic pots,
They are not on top,
So, make the right decision,
See my vision,
