Class 4 Clean Newlyn Beach

28th March 2018
Class 4 were provided with all the equipment and advice that they needed to clean a beach by Surfers Against Sewage. 
As a part of their project, the children have been learning about the environmental consequences of plastic waste in our seas and on the beaches. As a result, we decided to volunteer to clean Newlyn Beach. When we first walked onto the beach it looked pretty clean already, but after a short while we had collected several bags of netting, fishing lines, small broken down pieces of plastic and drink cans. The children collected enough waste from the beach to half fill an industrial wheelie bin. It was eye opening and surprised all of us. But well done children - they have made a difference.
