Earth Day and Entomology

7th May 2021

Although Earth Day was celebrated during the Easter holidays, Redcliffe pupils have been carrying on the climate conversation this term.

While students in Years 5 and 6 have been ‘Plogging’ away in the local community as part of our commitment to the UN’s Sutainable Development Goals, discussions about the measures we can take to reduce our carbon footprint have been taking place in Year 3 and 5. Year 4 have been inspired by artist Adam Bricusse; embarking on an entomological art project and considering how to portray insects in art.

Our planet is an amazing place, but it needs all our help to prosper. That’s why each year more than a billion people celebrate Earth Day to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation. By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we’re making our world a happier, healthier place to live.
