Today, year 4 pupils from Lomeshaye Junior School joined us for the day at Park. The focus of our day was ‘Our Environment’, focusing on plastic pollution. We began by reading ‘Only One You’ by Linda Kranz, which is a lovely book with an overall meaning of that there is only one of each of us, one world, so let’s make it a better place.
We explored why oceans are so important, what plastic pollution is doing to the ocean and the sea creatures. We then looked at the timeline and the journey of a plastic straw and how we could end up having plastic on our own dinner plate! We thought about how much plastic we use in our everyday lives, and how we can change this.
The Park children were excellent hosts to their friends from Lomeshaye, and Lomeshaye pupils were a credit to their school.
