Spring Term 2 Science Week Year 4

As part of Science week, we took part in a treasure hunt in our classrooms to find which objects were made of plastic and which were not. We then discussed just how many everyday items actually contained plastic and it was very eye opening to see how much plastic is used!

We worked in our learning buddies and researched plastic waste in different countries. We then shared our findings with the rest of the class. We were amazed to find that Sweden recycles its entire plastic waster and burns it to produce electricity. India has banned various types of plastic from being imported over its borders. We then produced posters in groups to show how everyone can help prevent plastic pollution.
