Y2 Learn about Plastic in our Environment

...Year 2 recently completed a comprehension about plastic in our environment. It sparked many debates about the issue and this in turn led to a pupil-led project idea. Pupils asked if they could collect used plastic packaging and recycle it into a useful item or something that would benefit the environment.

Lilou created a turtle collage to visually show how these gentle creatures are being harmed by plastic, Rupert built a water filter and Luke made a two-storey house for snails that he would fill with leaves.

Other creations included toy rockets, handbags and a puzzle which also transformed into a musical instrument!
