Our ocean is like plastic soup – Children speak out

“When I saw the sea creatures in danger I was so sad and wanted to make a big change quick! We need our fish to be happy and keep our world a beautiful place.”  Bethany 

“I loved creating our class assembly, but our ocean is still like plastic soup! We need to carry on making a change and help our world.”   Zobaida 

“I am really happy that we have learnt about this topic because I was so shocked that all of this plastic is going into our oceans. It also taught our parents and family a really valuable lesson about how we are affecting our world.”  Janjua

“When I heard that the sea was full of pollution, I was shocked and wanted to make a change! All kinds of fish are in danger and other marine creatures are getting tangled up or eating plastic. If we all help and recycle more we could save the fish and live in a peaceful world.”  Hooria 

“When Miss Jenkins showed us the pictures of pollution in our oceans I wanted to help all of the animals straight away! It is our responsibility to look after the world and make God proud. I love our world and 2EJ want to teach everybody how to keep it safe.” Yaw 

After taking part in a recycling workshop led by Manchester City Council, the children were so eager to find out more about the effects of pollution on our environment. I was so impressed with the level of passion, maturity and enthusiasm that the children demonstrated and knew that we had to continue to learn more! The children decided that they wanted to use their upcoming class assembly as an opportunity to send out a very important message. They collaborated together to plan and create things for their assembly, I simply facilitated learning and followed their lead. They all worked so hard and many children even made information booklets and posters at home in their spare time. I personally feel incredibly proud to teach such a caring, responsible and passionate class of very special children.  Miss Jenkins

The School Assembly the children did was outstanding. Well done children, well done Miss Jenkins! The children worked so well together as a team and clearly were impassioned by their message. All who saw it received an important challenge and inspiration to bring change to our world – No ordinary world, a diamond in the universe the children sang.

Like the children let’s take action where we can – now!
