Last week in year 5, we learnt all about natural and synthetic products and how synthetic items such as plastic chairs are actually made from a natural resource – Petroleum. The children demonstrated their knowledge of how overusing natural resources will eventually destroy our planet.
They also learnt the damaging effect that producing synthetic items can cause, as these are unable to biodegrade and will eventually end up in landfill (Mrs Calbreath’s least favourite thing in the whole world!) The children then collected some natural resources of their own and had a chance to produce some very lovely artwork. take a look.
