Last week was EDF Energy’s ‘Waste Week’. Sound School joined in and we had great fun. The theme of waste week was ‘biodiversity’ which is when the humans, animals, plants, trees and even minibeasts come together to help make the world go round. Biodiversity controls the temperature of Earth, the weather and how we grow food.
Primary 2 & Primary 5 learned that things like climate change can be bad for biodiversity. We must replace trees and flowers we cut down; buy local produce to reduce pollution and most importantly reduce, reuse and recycle.
Here is a picture of primary 4’s collecting the plastic from the classrooms ‘feed me plastic’ boxes. At Sound we are doing very well at recycling plastic in the big bins at the Fish Box. W
e also reuse plastic yogurt tubs for paint and are starting to use milk jugs to make a ‘bottle garden’.
The Eco Club told a story to the Nursery and the Primary1’s called ‘Litter Red Riding Hood’. Litter Red Riding Hood doesn’t know how bad it is to litter until the Wolf tells her. We learned that animals can get very seriously hurt and even die from eating or being caught in our litter.
Primary 1 made a giant hedgehog with the Eco Club using recyclable materials like cereal boxes, Pringles tubes and egg boxes. We hope that when people see our hedgehog they realise that littering is not acceptable. The Nursery joined in too, making birds using junk modelling.
Thanks to everyone for joining in and remember:
REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE
