Win £10,000 towards your school's big green dream

What is your school's big green dream? The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust is running a competition for secondary schools across the UK to win up to £10,000 to help turn their dream into a reality. The independent charity, which helps community renewable energy projects get off the ground, is calling on school pupils in Year 7 - 8 in England and Wales and S1 – S2 in Scotland to submit their ‘Big Green Dream’. Schools can submit creative entries such as drawings, videos, collages, poems or paintings for a chance to win. One school will receive the top prize of £10,000 to make their dream a reality. Four runners up will receive £5,000 for their school and eight schools will receive £1,000. Teachers can submit entries and find out more about the competition at www.biggreendream.co.uk. The deadline for entries is midnight on 31 December 2017. If you have any questions, please contact the Big Green Dream team at biggreendream@stripecommunications.com.

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

This class assembly was written for Year 6 but could easily be used in lower years. The script takes around 20 minutes to perform and has enough parts for any sized group. There are lots of speaking roles that can be shared or added to and plenty of non-speaking parts as well. The first scene opens with people around the world discovering all the water on earth is gone. It leads to news reporters following the story around the world to various famous rivers (including Amazon, Nile, Ganges, Yangtze, Mississippi and Mekong). We hear about some of the current environmental issues at each site including pollution and the effect on ecosystems and food chains, urbanization and soil erosion, global warming and flooding, animal extinction, over population, deforestation, rain forest destruction, People finally come and demand their water back but the rivers ask for certain promises from the humans. The play offers suggestions for 'viewers' to help out our environment in general. There is a very effective demonstration of water waste from leaving taps on while brushing teeth that leaves the audience thinking about their actions. The document is written as an open and editable word document, so you can edit and adapt for your group. We hope you enjoy!
