Plastics in our Oceans
Since September, as a school, we have been thinking about the plastic in our oceans. On Monday 7th January 2019, Years 4, 5 and 6 has a visit from Gavin, a Fisherman Ambassador. He was from the Lyme Bay Reserve project and he came to talk all about Marine Litter. The children, and adults, were shocked to find out about the amount of plastic pollution in our oceans and also at how long it can take to degrade! Following on from this, we wanted to do something about it and become the solution, not the problem.
Sky Ocean Rescue has teamed up with the Premier League to challenge children from across the UK to create pledges and consider ways in which they can reduce the amount of plastic which, sadly, can end up in our oceans causing great pain, distress and even death to the marine wildlife. Thinking about this, Year 5, each thought of their own pledge, such as bringing in a reusable water bottle and using metal knives and forks. However, together, they came up with a pledge to reduce the amount of plastic they bring in in their lunch boxes.
We discussed changes we could make: using a reusable water bottle; having a container for our sandwiches rather than cling film; using crisps from a large bag rather than separate multi-packs and many more. We have even started to carry out pledges out - it has been great!
Please helps us with our #PassonPlastic pledge and try to reduce the amount of single use plastics in our lunch boxes and in our homes!
This half-term, along side Miss Moore, Year 5 will be working with Mr Slater to participate in different forest school activities! It is a very exciting opportunity - which the children are very much looking forward to!
Monday 14th January 2019
This week, Year 5 made fires. They collected different sizes of stick and used cotton wool and fire steel to get their fires going! They had great fun and are looking forward to next week!
Happy New Year - 2019
As we enter a new year, we also embark on our learning journey into the Spring Term. This term, we have lots of new and exciting opportunities ahead!
