William Byrd Primary Academy

Year 5 Learning about Recycling

Did you know that by the time the children in Year 5 are 40 years old, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish!

Year 5 have been developing their persuasive writing techniques and have been researching about the destruction single use plastics are having on our environment. In order to hook the children into the topic, children collected various different recycling materials and created a class display that depicts the devastation being caused.

The children were all very engaged and became quite passionate about the topic and discussed ways that we can help our environment and save the planet.
