Spring Term 2 Science Week Year 6

This week, we discussed what plastic is and what happens to it when we throw it away. We used new vocabulary: decompose, disintegrate, reusable and synthetic. We discussed what we can do to use less plastic and changes the government can make. We then created posters to use in our local area to encourage people to use less plastic. We also thought about how we can recycle plastic to make and sell new products. We discussed how we could support people in the other countries to earn a living by recycling plastic to make a product to sell. We designed a product, identified its purpose, chose the materials we would need and decided on a suitable price.
