Year 4 spent Term 4 studying plastics and sustainability. They learned about the different types of plastics, what can be recycled and the danger of microplastics in our environment. This is a problem particularly prevalent in our oceans.
Guest speaker from Envirocom, Chris Dart, provided a fun, interactive way for students to learn about reusing and recycling. The students then used this information to make models out of plastic and other rubbish to depict the problem of them on our marine wildlife and landfill issues in our world.
