Howe Dell Primary School


At Howe Dell our Education for Sustainable Development empowers all learners with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to take informed decisions and make responsible actions for the environment. Our ESD opportunities are linked to our CUSP resources and curriculum learning to support children in making connections between the curriculum and real life events to aid them in shaping a sustainable future. Through our teaching of the curriculum teachers plan and deliver thinking tasks that consider environmental impact, sustainable development, cultural awareness and cultural diversity. For example, in year 1 when teaching the children about trees in science, we conduct a local area study to identify what trees are around our school. We considered the importance of trees and the impact of deforestation on animals. In Year 6 the children consider seasonal produce within their Food and Nutrition DT unit and therefore, how this can reduce their carbon footprint.

We started the year by joining the Big Bird watch. 

We loved using the equipment to spot birds far away and became more aware of how our environment in the school impacts wildlife.
