Class 5 (Year 2) Science

1st October 2021

"As part of a topic about recycling, Year 2 had a visitor from a waste management centre this week. We had a fantastic morning and learned so much about what happens to the things we throw away! We learned all about what should and should not be put into the different wheelie bins and how important it is to recycle as much as we can.

We started with a multiple choice quiz, full of interesting facts and figures. We had to discuss the options and then vote for the answer we thought was correct. We sorted pictures of items into the correct colour bins and also had to decide how long we thought it would take different items to rot, ranging from 1 month to 1 million years! We were amazed to learn how long some items would take!


Finally, we used recycled milk bottles to make plant pots, and planted some bulbs."
