The children (and staff!) were astonished when they arrived at school on Monday morning to a playground awash with plastic: the contents of just one week’s worth of plastic in staff recycling bins! It was a salutary reminder of how much we are disposing of every day and was the ‘hook’ into our whole school Big Write text ‘The Day the Ocean Went Away’. This week we have all become thoroughly immersed in the issues surrounding the problem of disposing of plastic, and in particular the impact this pollution is having on our oceans, and have all been inspired to write poetry, instructions, stories and persuasive arguments on the theme. We will share our writing together next week.
The children will be bringing home their World Book Day book tokens which they can use to help pay for books from participating bookshops, including books written especially for World Book Day 2019.
