"We all thought about Prince Philip and the work he has done to improve the lives of young people and for the environment.

"Classes learnt about other people whose actions have changed the world. These included Jane Goodall, Emmeline Pankhurst, David Attenborough and Captain Tom Moore. "The children learnt how people can use their skills and talents to help others and that anyone can make a difference."

The project taught children how to face challenges with resilience.
