Aldrington CE Primary School

Our City, Our World Launch - Day 19 April 2024

Today we asked for children to come into school wearing something green or blue to represent all the trees and water in our world.  This was an all-day event in school with everyone taking part in a rotation of fun-filled, informative activities to launch Our City, Our World at Aldrington.  Children had the opportunity to think about their role in protecting the environment, both locally and globally, in a way that empowers and motivates action for change.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children spent time learning about food, travel and biodiversity while Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children focused on consumption and waste, water, energy and the role of an Eco Committee within school.  At the end of the event, boards were put up outside the front of school showcasing what the children had been up to and learned throughout the day.  Click here to have a look.
