P7 have been exploring and investigating renewable energy and considering the importance of this in the future. They have also been linking this to Global Goals and Sustainability and have explored air , land and water pollution and the effects of this on the environment. They have examined the process of getting food on to our plates from the grower and the impact of pollution on animals and creatures.
They have developed an understanding of sustainable sources and products, conducting experiments and designing products linked to these concepts. The experiments included liquid separation and how the results of this could be linked to water pollution, the effects of air pollution on the lungs and a STEM challenge to build a working wind turbine.
They have really enjoyed this learning experience and will continue to consider their role in protecting the environment in the future.
