Year 3 and 4 have been busy learning about marine and beach pollution, discussing the consequences that this can have on wildlife and looking at the different ways in which the children can help improve the environment. We had a look at some really interesting links on the National Geographic website, take a look by clicking on the link below.
The children designed a poster and a fact card with the aim to raise awareness for others about the problems plastics cause to wildlife.
On June 5th 2017 Andrew Mason, who is from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust came to speak to all the children doing the Young Leaders Award. He discussed the consequences of marine and beach pollution on wildlife and talked about how they can improve the environment.
What an insight!
On sunny Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th of June, children from years 3 and 4 took part in a 'beach clean' on Hornsea Beach with their teachers and parents with the aim to give something back to their local community and to care for our wildlife.
What an amazing effort made by all the children and the parents too who came along to help! A great-big thank you to you.
28 bin liners of rubbish collected in just 2 hours!!
What a life-changing experience for both the marine wildlife and yourselves.
You should all be so proud of your achievements!
