Climate Change Protest P4C

posted 20 Sep 2019, 08:17 by Richard Hanks

Today, Mr Hanks's children joined the Climate Change protest. The Year 3 children discussed whether this was a good thing to do. 

Many children initially said no. Education is a right and should not be given up. 

We then explored what climate change was and why some people think it is the most important issue. Some Year 3s already did thinks to help prevent climate change such as not using aeroplanes and not buying products with palm oil.

By the end of our discussion, some children believed a strike was an appropriate choice. Other children thought staying in school and using their education to prevent climate change was a better choice.

What do you think?
