This week in our School for Autism we have been celebrating Earth Day by combining our creative skills to create one huge poster that increases awareness of the event. The event itself began in America in 1969 as a reaction to a disastrous oil spill. Since then, every year people all over the world come together to increase awareness of how we can all become more environmentally friendly in our everyday lives.
In the school for Autism, each class has utilised their imagination to decorate footprints on various environmental themes such as conserving water, saving energy and recycling. All artwork has then been pulled together to create a huge poster in our main entrance.
We are entering a competition to try to win by showing our poster with the #EarthDayWithMajority
By celebrating Earth Day we are hoping to increase awareness of the climate crisis that is slowly developing around the world. It is important now, more than ever that we pull together as a community to help protect our environment and do what we can to save our earth.
In the school for SEND, one of the older classes celebrated earth day by creating iced biscuits with blue and green icing to represent the Earth and also made their own Earth artworks and had lots of fun!
