The children in Nursery have been sorting the packaging from their packed lunches and finding out what can be recycled and what needs to go in the bin.
They are learning how to be super recyclers!
As part of our ‘Under the Sea’ topic, we have been talking about ocean pollution. We made group posters to tell everyone how to save our sea creatures and create better habitats for them to live in.
As part of our ‘under the sea’ topic, we are learning about pollution in our oceans. Today we took part in our own litter pick around the Nursery grounds. We then sorted the litter into different categories, recyclable and non recyclable.
We are delighted that Tilly in year 5 was chosen as the winner for the World Water Day poetry competition. Her poem raised awareness of the impact that pollution is having on our planet as well as the importance of recycling.
P for protect the water – stop oil spills
O for oil is destroying our waters and planet
L for let’s keep cleaning our community
L for don’t litter – recycle
U for underground dirt and muck is going into the pipes and into the rivers
T for the more water wasted the less for dying animals
I for let’s interfere and help water
O for open your mind about the world and help
N for never waste water and don’t put your rubbish in the sea. Put it in a bin. Start caring.
Recently, some of the children in year 3 took part in a litter pick. They explored our school surroundings to collect litter and make it a cleaner and safer environment. The children had so much fun and informed the rest of the class the importance of putting our litter in the bin. Check out our pictures to see how much fun we got up to with Toffee bear!
Loads of children designed a poster to show what the world would be like in 50 years time as part of the council’s climate change initiative. Check out the 10 finalists whose work will go on display in the Customs House in November.
We are planting wildflower seeds to create more areas for our pollinators, and reusing water from our water butt, and milk containers as watering cans.

Children in Y3W took a trip to the allotment on Friday to replant some cabbages. We have been learning lots about plants in our Science lessons, including what they need to grow. We are ready to water them regularly and watch them flourish!
