In recent weeks, Year 7 classes have been working on designing their own eco homes and I have been very impressed with the results! Many students put considerable time and effort into researching ways to reduce the carbon footprint of a house and then went on to present their designs in clear, detailed ways. We had imaginative ideas like eco-living on a canal boat to repurposed shipping containers. Some students made fantastic models of their eco homes. A special mention goes to Sofia and Lydia W. (7S), who produced fantastic models with many well researched ideas for making a house environmentally friendly. See the pictures below and if students want to see the eco homes for themselves, you can find them on display at the bottom of the library stairs.
