CHILDREN at a Darlington school have been using puppets to help them learn about global warming, climate change and the importance of recycling.

Year 5 pupils at The Federation of Mowden Schools had a visit from KanDo Arts, who run an education programme aimed at promoting caring for the environment through recycling and anti-litter.

The children were treated to a Recycle Magic Show performance, followed by a puppet making demonstration using all kinds of recycled materials.

A spokeswoman for the school said: "This allowed the children to witness first hand a fun a positive approach to recycling.

"After grafting away to add the final touches to their puppets, the children had the opportunity to bring them to life through role play and drama."

The project was part of a topic titled Man's Impact on the Environment.

I love CO2 says...

I dread to think of the scope for climate propaganda here. I hope the children were advised that the evidence for a dangerous impact by man on climate is bordering on the negligible, and that they should not be losing any sleep over it.
