Year 5 have been thinking about our environment and how we can help to improve plastic pollution. Have a read of some of their amazing writing.

Did you know that plastic is hurting our environment?

Plastic is hurting our environment because 400,000 particles per square meter are going into the Pacific Ocean. In the UK, 9% of plastic recycled, 125 is burnet and 79% is sent to a landfill. Out of 5 million plastic bottles in the world 52% is and recycled 48% is sent to a landfill.

Theresa may said : ‘In years to come, I think people will be shocked at how today we allow so much plastic to be produced needlessly.’ May is urging supermarkets to put a levy on 5p bags and she is also thinks takeaways should use reusable boxes so they can stop littering plastic.

I think people should help the environment since they didn’t harm us so we should not harm them.

That’s what I think, what do you think?

Help the environment!!!


Did you know that our plastic scourge is sensational?

Shockingly, every minute, a lorry worth of plastic is dumped in our oceans , which is equivalent to 1,440 lorries a day. This controversy is unacceptable because it is killing and harming our marine wildlife. One in three fish caught in the channel contain plastic, which is affecting their health (and yours).If a fish consumes plastic, if we eat that, then the plastic will be in our stomach. Some communities are aware ; some aren’t.

Teresa May calls our world’s .“ one of the great scourges of all time”. This means, the prime minister thinks plastic is a disastrous and aggressive problem. The prime minister wants to eliminate unesessary plastic waste in the next 25 years. She wants to make small shops charge the 5p -tax-on plastic bags, which they don’t currently have.

I think as children, we should debate the issues ,so that we are aware. we should also recycle more and have a bigger fine if you littered. it’s a big worry and heart breaking that fish and other creatures are dying ,YOU MUST HELP! It’s sad that nobody cares
