To begin with, we looked at natural disasters and ‘extreme events’ around the world – such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. Year 6 then looked at our local environment and the problem of plastics. We visited Rousse and took part in a beach clean. Year 6 were so shocked by the impact of plastics that they decided to hold a ‘Plastic-Free Lunch Week’ in which they wrote to parents and persuaded them to reduce their use of plastics. BBC Guernsey interviewed the students about how they were helping the community and how they wanted to raise awareness of the problem of plastics. We also spent time clearing hottentot fig from the headland and cleaning rubbish from the beach at Rousse. We also made our own volcanoes and erupted them in our Science lessons and learnt how to create 3D artwork when learning about tornadoes.
