We have had another wonderful day outdoors in our local community for the CONSERVE part of our John Muir award. First, we collected litter in the park and field next to our school to conserve the environment there. P5 couldn’t believe it when our litter weighed a stone! We were shocked and will now encourage other not to drop litter. Then, P5 returned to the river. While there, we learned about Native, Non-native and invasive species and their impact on habitat. We also learned how dangerous some plants can be.
P5 want to say a huge thanks to Sam, our ranger, for being so full of knowledge and enthusiasm. It has really helped to focus on the importance of being kind to our world. P5 showed great respect outdoor and should be so incredibly proud of themselves…they have even managed to convince Miss McKay that the outdoors are not so scary after all.
Congratulations to our heroes this week. Our focus was on Respect. You should all be so proud!
Some fantastic opportunities to find out more about sustainable living and Earth Hour!
