The Ferry Meadows workshop was designed to show how different micro-climates can exist in a small geographic area. The children had to measure windspeed, light intensity, air temperate, ground temperature, and canopy cover at 20 metre intervals.

Finally we explored the issue of climate change, global warming, and the greenhouse effect with videos from BBC Teach:
Finally, they also made their own climate change posters:
