NEWS & STORIES
As part of the various youth climate strikes, Coltham Garden Primary School in Bristol, decided to put the whole school’s curriculum on strike.
They first did this on two separate occasions in 2019; 20th September and 29th November.
To coincide with Greta Thunberg’s visit to Bristol, the school worked collaboratively with its school’s community and asked the children, parents and carers and staff what their thoughts were on the strikes and what they can do as a school. They came to consensus to go ahead with another curriculum strike on Friday 28th February 2020.
The school abandoned their usual timetable and decided to engage the whole school with the ThoughtBox ‘Changing Climates’ resources, as well as going the extra mile and coming up with some school specific creative activities. They explored different elements of climate education, for example, the cause and effect of climate change, controversy behind climate inaction and the students practised skills of critical thinking and empathy building.
As a school, Cotham Garden Primary is already going well beyond the national curriculum in bringing new ideas for climate education into the community.
