Primary school art piece wins climate competition

Pupils of Baldwin's Gate C of E Primary School were treated to a special day at The Natural History Museum as part of their prize for winning OPAL’s climate competition.

There were more than one hundred entries to the competition, which ran in National Geographic Kids (NG Kids) magazine.

The winning entry was a creative collage depicting the sky and climate. It impressed the judges for its combination of fact and creativity.

The children enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the Natural History Museum and took part in a number of special workshops. The class also received £1,000 to spend on green spaces around the school.

Class teacher, Steph Gardner said, 'We’re all very proud of winning the OPAL climate competition… is important that our children learn about the climate as it will be their responsibility when they grow up'.
