We did an assembly to remind everyone that they should not open windows and doors with the heating on, and to keep heaters no higher than 18C. We appointed classroom monitors to keep an eye on this.
Run regular energy saving assemblies to remind everyone in the school about the importance of saving energy. Here are some ideas of what you could share in your assemblies. Many of these suggestions link to another Energy Sparks activity, so you can score double points for your work:
Review the Energy Sparks energy usage charts for your school. Present some of the Energy Sparks charts in an assembly. Explain to pupils what the charts show in terms of the main uses of energy at your school, and ask pupils for ideas of how you could save energy. Use the assembly to present an action plan to reduce energy use. Present a follow-up assembly after a month to present Energy Sparks charts showing the change since the last assembly, and discuss further ways you could reduce energy use.
