Year 5 were joined by some of our Eco committee this afternoon to take part in our Skype Call with scientist Dakota Holmes from the National University of Ireland, Galway. He is a Paleoclimatologist and he helped us understand the fact of climate change on our planet. We learnt the earth is getting hotter and how this could effect our quality of life going forward, including effect on life in Africa. We also learnt how we can do things to change this trend and save our planet going forward. The children have taken this topic to heart after seeing a newsround episode on the subject last week. Thy enjoyed showing their climate change posters to the scientist
and I’m sure we will continue to look at this area throughout the spring and summer terms.
