As some of you may be aware, there is an important environmental conference taking place in Glasgow from 31st October – 12th November : the COP26 Climate Summit. As a UNICEF Rights School we know that we have the right to give our opinions about how we can help tackle climate change and adults should listen and take us seriously.

We have been asked by an organisation called Global Jamming, to make a short song and film, which will  become Cornwall’s message to the politicians and leaders attending the summit. As part of our Wild Tribe and  Music learning we are writing our own song for the world leaders to ask them to take notice of climate change. This has been a collaboration with two other local primary schools and co-ordinated by our Creative Lead Kari Gilbert. 

The song is based on a sea shanty that Global Jamming wrote for the G7 Summit in St Ives, which took place this summer. On that occasion, they invited people (through Radio Cornwall), to write verses for the song – which was then sung from St Ives Island on the weekend of the conference.

Class 4 and 5 have done an amazing job of writing lines and messages to the world leaders, thinking about some really complex and challenging issues. Hopefully they will be able to tell you about the kinds of things we have been discussing! We have written messages on leaves to create a virtual tree of what we want to happen.
