This morning, y5 had the opportunity to join the Young Imagineers on a LIVE lesson all about sustainability. This linked well to our science topic: Materials and their properties and allowed us to think scientifically and consider the nemesis social competencies to consider our impact on the planet.
We learned how plastics were made , the benefits they gave but also the startling detrimental effect that plastics are having on our planet. The lesson invited us to seize what is good about them but also to work towards reducing plastic wastage, seeking out alternatives and hopefully changing the future of our planet for the better.
We all have a role to play.
