High Littleton Primary School recently teamed up with guest speakers from Wicked Weather Watch to give pupils an insight into how they can change aspects of their day to day life and slow the effects of Climate Change. Among the initiatives that Gill and Rhianna from Wicked Weather Watch discussed were the basic principles of reuse, recycle, reduce, buying less meat, milk, cheese and butter, buying more locally sourced seasonal food, throwing less food away, driving electric cars, and walking or cycling short distances.
“We also enjoyed some fun activities such as making seed bombs, wax food wrappers, and making a huge collage of our beautiful earth,” said Mrs Bailey, the Eco-school Coordinator. “Despite the very wet weather, most classes were able to join in Trash Mob – litter picking around the village and Greyfield Woods.
“We will be seeing a lot more of the Wicked Weather Watch team as next year we are joining the Schools Climate Action Programme which will help us to expand our knowledge of climate change and show us ways to take sustainable climate action.
“A big thank you to Wicked Weather Watch and all the staff who worked incredibly hard to make the day enjoyable for all.”
Rhianna Davies-Smith, the Education and Projects Coordinator at Wicked Weather Watch, added, “What we hope to achieve with our engaging schools programme is multiple schools within Bath, Bristol and Chippenham taking a whole-school approach towards climate action. This programme works with a year group in depth over the course of four terms in order to really inspire, impact and involve young people in the climate discourse and give them the tools, hope and knowledge they need to take action.”
