Kia ora koutou!

I hope you have all had a great start to the week!

You may have seen on Seesaw that this week we have amped up our inquiry into rubbish, pollution, plastic and our environment.  Today, we had the privilege of having Dr Trisia from Massey University come in and speak with us about plastic, how we use it, and where much of it ends up.  I would love for this conversation to continue at home.  You may like to ask your child about what they learnt, and perhaps one thing they could do to reduce their use of plastic.

Linking to this topic, we have been researching and designing a wearable art piece on the theme of Sustainable Seas.  Again, it would be so valuable to ask your child about their ideas, and what recycled materials they would use, as next week we will be heading into the ‘gaining feedback’ phase of the design process.  We will be using our ideas to create one final design that we all contribute to creating.

Thank you for your support in continuing these conversations.

Many thanks,
