Amy from New Forest National Parks came in to highlight to the children in assembly the importance of caring for our environment. She talked about the 4 Rs
REFUSE- choose to not use plastic
REDUCE- reduce the number of plastic things that you buy and use
Re- USE- re use anything again- trade a plastic bottle for a re-useable metal one
RECYCLE- recycle using the correct bins as much as you can.
She then worked with the school council on how we can persuade other to use the 4 Rs and they completed 4 mini workshops on matching artefacts to the historical period, guessing how long it would take for many household itenms such as batteries and nappies to decompose, looking at how we can replace plastic items for re useable ones and choosing whether items were natural or man-made.
