As a conclusion to this term’s topic, Year 5 visited the Earth Trust’s eco village at Wittenham Clumps recently enjoying a sunny day exploring the site, taking in the wonderful views and learning about the wildlife. They also investigated the five key sustainability themes of: energy, transport, water, food and waste, tried to calculate their own eco-footprint and in groups, design an eco village. Below are some of the comments from the girls about their visit;
