CCAC Project with Y5 2022

Throughout Term 6,  Year 5 will be taking part in a co-design collaboration project with the charity Climate Change All Change (CCAC). The purpose of the project is to blend climate literacy and creative design solutions to the climate crisis. This is an extremely exciting project and will cover the geography and DT learning in Term 6.

The project will be supported by two talented designers, Finbar Charleson and Jack Cardno, who will lead the co-design project in conjunction with the Year 5 teachers. The children will be thinking about the local area and how Bristol may look in 2050. They will get the opportunity to design and make environmentally-friendly buildings, using renewable resources and have the opportunity to present these to parents at the end of term. Some of the designs will also be developed by the architects into 3D models and displayed in the Young V&A museum.

You can find out more about CCAC and a pilot completed with another school by following the link below. Children who have external media permission will be part of a video about the project, created by film-maker Radford Nicholls. Dr Heather King, Reader in Science Education at King’s College London will lead the evaluation of the project with a small team of academics.

This project is a very exciting opportunity for the Year 5 children and we will share some photos of the sessions below.
