We earned our second green school flag for 'Energy'. We read the story 'Guzzlers Big Book on Energy' and it inspired us not to waste energy like guzzler. We had a visitor from SEAI she helped us think of ways to save energy and did some experiments with us to show how much energy we use. We even got to meet Guzzler.
We save energy in school by turning off the lights and opening the blinds when it is bright out. Checking all the lights and boards are turned off before we leave the room. We close the doors on the corridors to keep in the heat and turn off the radiators are turned off instead of opening the windows when we get too hot. Every week at assembly the class that has saved the most energy gets a special energy saving prize.
Room 7 saved the most energy this week!
At home the children try to turn off televisions and computers rather than having them on standby. They turn lights off when they room is not being used and they try to have showers instead of baths which uses less hot water.
