We were delighted to learn that one of our Year 4 pupils, Olivia Lewis, was a winner of the WWF & First News Earth Hour Competition: Facing The Future. Entrants were required to make a short video reporting on how our world might look if we do nothing to tackle climate change issues OR how our world might look if we take action and include their own promise to the Earth. Olivia tells us about her prize:
"On the 5th March, I went to Cherry Duck Studios to record two short short bulletins about a negative future and a positive future. There were 3 of us (2 winners and a runner-up), Archie, Rushanna and me. The Director was called Nick and he was really nice. We had a script each but if we couldn't remember our words, we would read them from auto-screen in front of the camera. I had to change parts because Rushanna couldn't see the auto-screen very well. It was soooo fun! Everyone was so welcoming and nice. It was one of my best experiences."
Everyone at Robin Hood Junior School is very proud of Olivia's work. Well done!
Videos will be released on 24th March 2018.
WHAT IS EARTH HOUR?
Earth Hour is a global movement, which brings millions together across the world to call for greater action on climate change. Each year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights and organise events – at home, in their community or in their towns or cities – to show they care about the future of our planet.
Last year nearly 9 million people across the UK took part to send a clear message of support for climate action. From the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle, cities, towns and communities across the world switched out their lights and came together for an hour, to join a global show of support for action on climate.
This year, Earth Hour will take place at 8.30pm on Saturday 24 March 2018. For further information, please visit: https://www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour
