Understand why COP26 was important

What you did

Today we watched the COP26 video which was in Glasgow. Cop26 is when leaders from across the world set an example and targets for us and the whole world to follow. The world is heating up and the ice is melting in the Arctic and Antarctica which is causing animals to lose their habitats. Bees are disappearing and farmers are using pesticides to kill insects from eating their crops. 

  • As a school we can travel to school by walking, cycling and scooting
  • We can increase the amount of plastic we recycle and reuse. 
  • Plant more trees to absorb carbon dioxide.
  • Use less electricity and turn off lights and chargers when they are not needed to be used.
  • Build bee homes to try and protect them.
