Year 2 plastic pollution day

Abi told Mariama how Year 2 started off their day with a visit from a local artist Laurie Newman who read us the story Jessie the Jellyfish. It was all about how plastic is disposed of in the sea and how this can harm sea creatures. We have learning about this in English lessons and have read and written about Duffy's Lucky Escape and turtle who swallowed some plastic which made her ill. Alongside this,  in Science we are studying materials, their uses, properties and have touched on how some materials are more sustainable than others and better for the environment. We have thought about what we can do for the future of our planet. Abi, Mariama and Mrs Preston visited all three Year 2 classrooms to see the art work they are created using single use wrappers. It was great what they created but were shocked how much plastic was left over !

Abi told Mariama about her current project and how she is working with Wateraid. Mariama and Year 5 are currently learning about this which is brilliant. Abi was really impressed and interested to hear what they had been doing. Abi had a lovely day with Year 2 and really enjoyed her talk with Mariama our Art Learning  Ambassador.
