A few days ago, Wildlife Club announced in assembly that Earth Hour will be on Saturday the 30th of March, and encouraged us all to take part. Wildlife Club have been coming up with lots of ways to help the environment in school, such as reducing plastic waste, providing homes for hedgehogs and food for birds.
Earth hour is an hour without no electricity. It is an event that aims to create awareness of people taking responsibility towards a sustainable future by turning the lights off. Earth hour saves electricity, and as most electricity is made by polluting power stations, this could save the world and wildlife from dying due to Global warming. Also, if you want to stop worrying about your electricity bills you can light candles like the olden days.
Wildlife club gave some ideas for things to do during Earth Hour that don’t need electricity, such as playing board games, reading or playing with lego. One of the teachers suggested that we might even have a go at doing it as a school on Friday! We’re planning to take part, are you?
