WLPS during Lockdown
Wrap around care
As part of World Environmental Day all children in our school joined together in a big project to think about our use of plastic. Eco club started the day with an assembly which shared facts about the growing problem of using single use plastics. These plastics include plastic water and fizzy drink bottles, plastic straws, plastic cups and plastic bags. We found out that plastic easily gets washed out into the sea and has a dramatic impact on wildlife. In 2050 it is estimated that there will be more plastic bottles in the sea than fish. This is something that made many of the pupils sad. “If we have no fish, the sea will lose all of its colours.” We want to make a change.
Shearwater Farm is our very own farm set within the school grounds. The farm was established in March 2016 . It provides an outdoor learning resource for the school, local community groups and offers volunteer opportunities to local residents.
