Greta Thunberg

Equality class have been learning all about the environment and plastic pollution. Greta Thunberg is a famous ECO Warrior who fights against the Climate Crisis. She wants to make adults realise how damaging the environment now, is ruining the future for the next generations. We can all do our bit at home, such as: recycling, switching off lights and taps when they are not in use, buying less clothes, walking instead of driving, upcycling old furniture and aiming for a meat free day at least once a week. Can you think of any other ways in which we can help Greta’s course?Photos of children holding up pollution work

Art work by Equality class

Check out this fantastic art by Steve Mcpherson! He is a local Kent artist who has collected random plastic objects from the beaches of Kent to create these colourful works of Art. After looking at his work, we were inspired to collect colourful plastic items from around the school to create our own art work, in the style of the artist. https://www.stevemcpherson.co.uk/steve-mcpherson-marine-plastic/

Plastic Pollution

Equality class used recycled waste items from round the school to make some sea creatures and create a time lapse video for our topic on plastic pollution.

We used recycled paper towels to papier mache a dolphin (after quarantining for a safe amount of time). The jellyfish are bowls from breakfast club and the octopus were made from used gloves and stuffed with old paper towels.

Please remember to recycle your rubbish at home and help us reduce plastic pollution!

We've been using Purplemash to design and play our own 3D computer games. Some of them are scary!
