Plastic In Our Oceans
Last updated 19.05.23

A huge thank you to all the families that have supported us creating a fabulous display of recycled plastic by saving all those precious bottle lids for the last year.

The display was designed by Craft Club members earlier on this year. Craft Club members, some of Year 6 and the children who visited us from France, alongside Mrs Winslow, have worked incredibly hard to create this striking design highlighting the issue of plastic waste in our oceans.

Plastic pollution is when plastic gets into the ocean and causes harm to the creatures and the plants that live there. Devastatingly, plastic is in EVERY ocean across the world.

700 species of animals are severely threatened because of plastic waste. There will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050!

One of the reasons plastic pollutions is such a problem is that it does not go away, plastics are forever. Instead, plastic simply breaks down into even smaller particles known as microplastics. Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to ocean health worldwide.
