Happy Earth Day!Posted on: 17/04/2023
This Saturday, 22nd April, will be Earth Day.
In Collective Worship this morning, we thought about our school value of service and shared ideas for how we can help to look after our precious planet and its plants and creatures.
What can we do to help look after our planet?
At home and at school we try to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as we can. Click here to find out how:
Here are a few more creative ways that you could reuse materials in your home:
Make a game

Make a bird feeder
Important notice: This activity requires close adult supervision and support.
Make a pot
Use papier mâché to make a pot. What will you keep in your pot? Precious trinkets? Pencils? A plant? ...You choose!
If you don’t have PVA glue, a flour and water paste works just as well!
Recycle Bottle Lids
How many way can you think of to reuse an old milk bottle top?
Earth Day for Early Years
Happy World Earth Day!
