Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - May 2019
Well done to all the children in Year 5/6 who produced some wonderful gifts from recycling products. The children produced a variety of gifts including: plant holders, bird feeders, sock toys, cat houses, pencil holders, ornaments and pictures of endangered species made from recycled materials. Each child gave a presentation about the gift they had made which showed their awareness of environmental issues our rubbish is causing. Mr Warner (one of our Governors) watched many of the presentations and asked the children questions regarding the products they had made.
