We would like to say a huge thank you to Tom Brannigan from Natural England who has spent time working with our year 5 pupils on change. We looked together at ways to reduce plastic, the children wrote some fabulous letters to some big companies to challenge their current practice and many responded, it is important for the children to know that we all need to do our bit to bring about change. We have really enjoyed having Mr Brannigan back in school, he was instrumental in setting up our pond area several years ago when he worked for the Environment Agency. Partnership far and wide is what develops our school.
We finished our project by visiting Formby Beach and taking part in a beach clean. We enjoyed seeing the difference that can be made by just picking up litter. We went with the year five friends in our partner primary in Cockshutt, what a great day together. We also had the opportunity to compare the locality with our own school area and look at a range of wildlife. So much learning, even the little things - if the wave goes over your welly you will get wet!
Have a a look at some photos of our work.
