Children of OCEPS, I am challenging you to "Show the Love" this half term and take action against climate change. Think about all the things you love that could potentially be affected by the rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. It's not just plants and animals, think about the food you love: cheese, pizzas, burgers...they could be affected! Think about sports you love: cricket, football, rugby...they could be affected too! Think about holidays you love: the seaside, ski-ing, camping...guess what? Yes, they could be affected!
It's no good just being angry- that won't help to change anything. You need to do something about it. So, this half term, decorate a green heart and take a photo of it next to something you love which could be affected by climate change. Upload it to your class dojo page via the portfolio. Then, think about a campaign that we as a school can get involved in; a way we can get companies or politicians to make the kind of changes we need to see to help save our world.
We are all connected to every plant, animal and person in the world. God gave us the responsibility as stewards of the earth to take care of the planet and the people on it. It reflects our values, the story of Creation and our responsibilities as global neighbours.
Below are links to the Climate Coalition website and 'Show The Love' campaign. There's a raft of resources, activities and challenges you can get involved in.
There are also links to a video about climate change and a clip of "Wonderful Worlds from David Attenborough's BBC show, to remind us of the beauty in and diversity of the world we are trying to save.
I can't wait to see your photographs and hear about your campaign ideas.
