Year 6 are very proud to unveil their masterpiece entitled ‘Eye on Pollution’. It has taken the children several weeks to collect old bottle tops in a variety of colours to create this enormous piece of artwork. Mrs Parpworth is very proud of their work, especially as it was made from over a thousand plastic bottle tops, meaning less waste potentially ending up in landfill or our oceans. Is it a fish? Is it an eye? Or is it both? The wonderful thing about art is that it generates debate. The issue of plastic pollution is an important issue for us all to consider.
Meanwhile, Year 5 visited Viking Bay to complete a beach clean. Betty and Morgan, our Eco-Warriors, have organised a schedule so that each class is committed to completing at least one beach clean during the academic year. They were pleased yet disheartened to have collected three whole bin bags of rubbish. The vast majority of the litter was non-recyclable such as cigarette butts, crisp packets and fishing line. It is frightening to think of the impact litter is having on our wildlife. We are very proud of our children for being responsible citizens and taking action to protect the environment. Well done to Year 5, you had a goal and you accomplished it!
