Teaching Climate Change and Sustainability in the Primary Curriculum

Edited by:

November 2023 | 216 pages | Learning Matters
The first aim of the DfE's 2022 Strategy for Sustainability and Climate Change is to prepare all young people for a world impacted by climate change through learning and practical experience.

This practical text for new teachers empowers them to develop their knowledge and understanding of climate change and sustainability. It supports them to develop confidence in discussing difficult themes and to create safe learning spaces that allow children to articulate concerns. The book provides a structure for learning and teaching about climate change and sustainability across the primary curriculum. All chapters are linked to relevant and authentic research and include suggestions for practical activities.
