Reduce, Reuse and Recycle week
Caring for our world matters as everyone matters. During the week we learnt about the importance of recycling, reducing and reusing materials.
We had our own recycling centre in the hall where we had to sort the rubbish into cardboard, paper, metal and plastic. We had to think carefully about which bags and boxes the rubbish would go in as well as looking at the signs. This was fun!
We reused our rubbish to create our own world with lots of amazing bottle animals. We had to cut, attach, fold and paint using different materials to create our models. Everyone contributed to our whole school display.
Year 2 went on a trip to Hespin Wood, recycling centre and watched first-hand how the rubbish is sorted and what happens to it. They found this very interesting.
Year 1 had a visitor, Amy from Devotion to Ocean, who explored how rubbish going into our oceans are harming the animals.
We thought of ways we can reduce what we use in our everyday lives and things that are more environmentally friendly.
Children planted their own fruit and vegetables and set up compost bins.
The children wanted to make sure everyone remembers this important learning so we now have an Inglewood Eco-Committee who is responsible for monitoring the continued work of reducing, reusing and recycling in our school. They carried out a review and discovered that all classes have plastic recycling bins but wanted more classes to have paper. They would like a craft bin in each class so children can access materials all the time during independent learning time to create reusable items. Children are very keen to have compost bins and use these as part of growing their own fruits and vegetables.
We all had a fun week whilst learning some very important lessons.
