Inspire Me! Eco Awareness
Teaching for a Positive Future!
Years 3, 4 and 5 in a Bolton school are stunning other schools and the local authority with their outstanding DT that has real life impact in a world filled with environmental concerns.
Mr Carson – Creative Arts Subject Leader stated “We had some eco-awareness signs on the playground and the children could tell me about them but NOT apply this to how they actually lived their lives. Fed up with making fair-ground rides and slippers, I incorporated recycling, up-cycling, repairing and repurposing items into the DT curriculum – and it has been a huge success!
“This is such a great way of demonstrating the link between eco-aware and eco-active! My children have loved finding out how to repair and repurpose items that they would habitually throw away.” - Miss Sohal ,Y5
“I have been overwhelmed and highly impressed with the proactive approach to linking current environmental issues with what has been a rather dry DT curriculum! The work undertaken by the teaching team here is impressive and the learning is real and impactful rather they hypothetical and not linked to real life.” - A. Davies – LA Advisor
“I couldn’t believe how much stuff we threw away when it could have been repaired or up-cycled. My class have loved learning how to do this and my mum says it has changed her way of thinking about throwing things away too. I tell her everything!” – Keilly Y6
“We have seen lots about environmental protesters on the news, but pupils said they just complain. We are actually doing something that will make a difference!” – Mrs Wilson - Headteacher
