The pupils went round the school at lunchtime and monitored what was switched off when pupils were outside. Often smartboards and lights were left on. On one of the day the pupils were inside and a discussion was had over if the lights needed to be on (was it bright enough with sunlight for playing indoors?) and what activities pupils could do that did not involve electrical items.
After a week, pupils fed back to the classes and spoke about why it is good to switch things off. When we looked at the data later on, we noticed that as the lunches across the school were staggered and the kitchen was using more energy at that time, it would be good to see a slight lowering beween 11.30 and 13.00. THey wanted to to this activity again at the start of each term to remind people to keep conserving energy.
