Working from home day after day at times like this can become quite boring after a while. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I probably should not go to the virtual morning coffee sessions in my dressing gown (they are yet to notice my delightful owl pyjama trousers…). However, every now and then, we get a delightful email in our ‘Hello’ inbox that makes me smile.
This week, that email was sent by Ms Cleaton, who has been working with the Year 4 Art Class of Llanfoist Fawr Primary School in Abergavenny, Wales. The topic they have been studying recently is called, “Save The Seas”, and they have been finding some interesting ways of spreading their knowledge.
The class has clearly been hard at work creating some excellent artwork from recycled material found at home! The waste they use helps show the importance of cutting down on plastic consumption whilst giving a very very artistic example of how we can reuse and recycle these materials! Pictured above, the children have created a beautiful collage of a whale and some other sea creatures in their natural habitat.
The art is currently on display at their school and we were so impressed that we wanted to share it with all of you! Well done Year 4 – your work is amazing, creative, and spreading an absolutely vital message that we should definitely “Save the Seas”.
If your school is getting creative with plastic waste or learning about how to stop plastic reaching the ocean, we’d love to hear about it. Email us your photos and what you’ve been up to on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share them here and on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
