Off the back of the recent David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet documentary, we’re challenging school students to show us their visions for a sustainable future.
As part of their Eco Day in October, Year 6 pupils at Sandford Hill Primary School in Stoke-on-Trent wrote and performed some brilliant Future Visions poems and songs.
And we love this motivating poem written by Charlotte Wildgoose, age 9, from Ashford Preparatory School in Kent.
Would think it is time to be kind,
And also to clean our air,
As it is only fair,
Now to live in harmony,
With animals; now can’t you see,
It’s time to get work done,
Then we can have fun,
Why don’t we plant some trees,
And also protect our seas,
So now to conclude,
I don’t want to be rude,
It is time to change,
SO PLEASE HELP!
Will you take the challenge?
If you want your class to get involved all you need to do is watch our short Future Visions film and come up with your response. This could be as a whole school, class, in groups or individually. Students might want to record a voiceover, film their own video, compose some music or write a letter or poem describing what they want the future of our planet to look like – it’s really up to them!
We will be showcasing more of our favourite school entries on our website and Learn to Love Nature Facebook group to inspire other schools to get involved, so remember to email your responses through to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
