World's Largest Lesson
This half term the whole school took part in the World’s Largest Lesson. Children from around the world learnt about the Global Goals (www.globalgoals.org) and ways in which they could help to achieve them by 2030. At Lydgate Junior School each year group focussed their learning around 1 of the 16 Global Goals.
In Year 3 we looked at Global Goal 15 – Life on Land – which is about protecting, restoring and promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, and halting and reversing land degradation and biodiversity loss. www.globalgoals.org/15-life-on-land
We learnt about being ‘nature positive’ and what we can do to become nature positive. We discussed our ideas and made a ‘promise to the planet’ as well as writing a promise we wanted world leaders to make. www.scouts.org.uk/about-us/help-others/promise-to-the-planet/
To ensure our nature positive message was heard loud and clear, we used the power of ‘artivism’. The idea is that ‘activism’ and ‘art’ are combined to spread important messages through art. artivism.worldslargestlesson.globalgoals.org
Have a look at our fantastic Year 3 artivism piece, now displayed in our school hall. We each created our own unique leaf and wrote on our promises to the planet. All the leaves came together to create our spectacular and thought-provoking ‘nature positive tree’; to show that one small idea combined with many can generate a big impact and create change.
