Sustainability News

Students across the school this week have been working hard on a variety of projects to help spread the message about the impact of plastic pollution and ways we can help to reduce it. Class 4BH created some beautiful images of ocean creatures as a response to the book, The Mess We Made, Class 3D came up with some very original ideas about how we can help and Class 2JJ have written a recipe for how to make a delicious carrot and pumpkin soup from imperfect carrots which would otherwise be wasted (a great idea for Halloween).

Watch this space for ways to celebrate National Recycling Week, 8th-14th November.
