We have just held a 2 day exhibition in our school to raise awareness of plastic pollution. Our whole school completed half a terms work last half term on plastic pollution which encompassed all areas of the curriculum. Please see the photos attached of our wonderful work! As part of our work we completed an audit of plastic usage in our school and decided we would like to reduce the amount of single use plastic in our school , inline with the government expectation of schools becoming single use plastic free by 2020. Our year 1 pupils wrote to our milk suppliers to urge them to rethink the single use straws which come with our milk. They also took part in a litter pick up in the local area and visited the local recycling centre. Our Eco team (we are a green flag eco school) have organised for new recycling bins for our school. In year 2, we wrote to our local MP Alison McGovern to urge her to raise our concerns in parliament. She came to our school to view the exhibition and has taken a selection of letters with her to discuss during prime Ministers question time! The local community visiting our exhibition were all urged to make a pledge for plastic in order for our project to have wider impact. We are immensely proud that a school with such young children (age 2-7) are making such a difference! We have many more pictures but we don’t seem to be able to upload them to this site!
