Happy New Year!
Year 5 made a great start back this week.
In English we are starting to look at Shackleton’s journey to the Antarctic which the children are very excited about.
The Eco Team created a brilliant assembly (at short notice) to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and to encourage us to use less disposable items such as carrier bags and coffee cups.
The takeaway coffee cups many of us drink our coffee in on the move are not able to be recycled. Taking our own reusable cups shopping is is just one of the items on the pledge St Andrew’s is making to cut waste and it is the one I am going to be signing up for. The other options you could sign up for are; cutting the use of plastic carrier bags by taking shopping bags in the car or reducing packing inside lunch boxes by avoiding cartons and clingfilm.
Year 5 pledge sheets will be going home on Monday so please think about which of the ways your family could reduce plastics and join our pledge.
