Sunny Schools resource

Practical, investigative and discursive climate change and solar power teaching resources

Sunny Schools tackles the issues of climate change and energy in schools, while bringing alive the science of renewable energy resources with a global dimension.

Activities are practical, investigative and discursive, encouraging pupils to think for themselves and to follow their learning with positive action, leading to participation in a more sustainable school and community life.

The programme is cross-curricular and has strong elements of geography, English, science, D&T and PSHE. All activities are clearly linked to the UK National Curriculum and can be used with pupils aged from 7 to 11 in class or an Eco Club. Ideally the programme should run across a term or half-term, but equally could be condensed into a school’s Green Week.

The resource collection comprises:

Welcome and introduction to the pack
Teaching unit cards
Quick links
Activity sheets
