Schools across the UK are stepping forward to teach children about important global issues. This video shows a group of Key Stage One children from Briar Hill Infant School learning about how they can help the bees.
They started by making excellent observations about what they noticed whilst looking at our Zoom In, Zoom Out, Feathery friend. Then the children learnt that scientists are concerned that the populations of some bee species are declining in the UK and shared their worries about this.
Finally, they took positive action by making wildflower seed balls and visiting their local wildflower field at St Margaret’s Junior School.
Julia Migné from Conservation Optimism says, "We believe that sharing and amplifying optimistic stories from around the world- both large and small- can inspire change and empower children to act for nature. We want young people to feel that they have agency and that they can make a difference to the future of the planet."
