On Friday 22nd June the whole school took part in a ‘World Ocean Awareness Day’. The children came to school dressed in either blues and greens to represent the oceans or as sea creatures. They all looked fantastic; costumes included mermaids, fish, seaweed, pollution and even a lobster!
Each class worked hard to raise awareness of the dangers of plastics in the ocean, over fishing and climate change. A wide range of activities took place, with classes making sea creatures out of recyclable materials, posters, turtles and even solving a ‘murder in the ocean’ crime.
In assembly the children listened to a local visitor, Dawn Wood. Dawn is aiming to break the world record of rowing single handed across the Atlantic Ocean whilst raising awareness of pollution in the oceans. The children asked some very sensible and interesting questions and were fascinated by her boat and equipment especially the shark scarer!
We all ask that everyone now considers the use of single use plastic bottles in school.
