We’ve been having a busy and fascinating week in Year 2 : our key words are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.It’s been fantastic to have so many interesting visitors coming to talk to us. We loved learning about how milk bottles are made and recycled and we loved seeing the recycling lorry with its scary crushing jaws!On Tuesday afternoon, Kay, Manni and Charlie came from Stroud College and helped us to reuse our old clothes by sticking, sewing and cutting to make something new! The results were spectacular, certain to turn heads at any party!In class, we have been using recycled materials to make some wonderful works of art to go with our Under the Sea topic. We’ve made blue whales and sparkly fishes out of various bottles.We have also been talking about pollution and conservation  – highlighting the plight of sharks and why we should try to help to save them.On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to have a visit from a Smiths recycling lorry. The men answered all of our question and showed us how all of its features worked. It was fascinating!
