LKS2 – Class 6 – Climate Justice

A few children from Class 6 were lucky enough to be invited to Leeds Trinity University today. 

Over the last term, the children have been working hard, focusing on answering their own big question: Why are the countries producing the least emissions most affected by climate change? This has included mini workshops at school, lots of hard work, dedication and green times spent perfecting their research and presentation ready for today! 

We started the day by looking around at other schools’ projects, asking them questions and learning about their big questions. We also had other children come to our table and got to tell them all about what we had been up to. Then, we went into a lecture theatre and listened to a speech from the Vice Chancellor of the University, all about the changes we can make to our lives to impact climate change. We also heard from a business and learnt more about their role in climate justice. Finally, we got to perform our poem in front of the other schools! 

Today was a fantastic opportunity to think scientifically, experience a University and work alongside one another to present something the children were proud of. They behaved brilliantly, were engaged in all discussions and certainly made Cookridge proud.
