Our planet, our future!

One of the children has written a beautiful poem about trees and the environment.

 

Beyond this tree

A secret lies beyond this tree,
A secret that’s for you and me,
Among those many leaves and branches,
It creates the oxygen we breath,
So we better keep it healthy.

 

A secret lies beyond this tree,
Not always that we may like to see,
Like photosynthesis as this may be,
It helps the leaves and make them green.

 

A secret lies beyond this tree,
Not on top but underneath,
It has little straws called roots you see,
They drag the water up the trunk,
And makes the tree all strong.

 

Yet destruction lies beyond this tree,
Not that many of us will see,
Please do not think this is the only tree,
This terrible fate lies among a thousand others.

 

There is a dream a hope,
If we join together to make a better a greener world…
We could start by recycling, litter picking,
creating eco-friendly packaging and using less of our black bins,

Just think for one second of a world with more trees,
More animals, enough food to go around…
And this all counts on saving trees.

 

It all starts with one choice.

A Visit From Phil Williams

17.05.16

 

The children enjoyed an engaging day with Phil Williams from Plan-It Eco.

 

Class 2 explored the school grounds, searching for mini beasts which they collected in order to study them back in the classroom. The children were thinking about how important these tiny creatures are in order to keep habitats and the ecosystem healthy. They were surprised at how much life there really is, right next to where they play.

 

Class 3 found out about how ingredients are shipped all over the world before they are put into everyday items that we can buy at the shops and the supermarket. They were shocked at the distance these ingredients had travelled. Did you know that all the ingredients in a tub of ice cream had already travelled about 15000 miles around the globe?

 

Class 4 were continuing their work on respect for each other and the environment. The children built on what they already know by thinking of ways to make a difference for the future of our planet. They discussed what it is we can do and how we can spread that message to others who are not aware of the problems that our planet faces. Watch this space to see what action plans they put in place...
