Last term In Chestnut class, we were learning all about looking after the local environment. We discovered that there are many ways in which we can do this. Chestnut Class thought about how they could help look after the environment at school. After a discussion, we decided to collect waste from around the school that could be used for compost. Compost helps reduce waste and also we learnt that it is rich in nutrients so can be used to help the plants in our garden grow. We placed bins at various locations around the school, made posters, spoke in assembly about what can be placed in the bins. We now even collect vegetable peelings from our school kitchen and add that to our compost heap in the school garden!
