SAVING OUR PLANET IS THE THING TO DO!

I think sustainability means to take care of the world and to always keep it clean so we can be happy. Mitchell
We were inspired by the children’s book ‘George Saves the World by Lunchtime’ by Jo Readman. The main character is a little boy called George who, with the help of his sister Flora and Grandpa, tries to think of all the things he can do to help save the world. We had fun acting out some of the story as well as sharing helpful tips on how we can help save the world.
Here are some of our ideas…
Don’t just chuck all your rubbish around -use the right bins. Mia
If we don’t save our water we won’t have any to drink. Oliver
If you walk places your car won’t make fumes and the air will be very good. Evan
Turn off the switches in your room when you are not in it. Trent
Take your own bag to the shops so you don’t have to get a plastic bag. Landen
Turn off the lights when you leave the room. Ivy
Always turn the tap off when you brush your teeth. Conor
Try and have a short shower and not a bath because that can waste water. Ella
We have learnt that there are four R’s that can help us in our quest to save the world!
Reduce – Use less of everything.
Re-use – Clean it up and use it again.
Repair – Fix it and use it again.
Recycle – Turn it into something useful.
The power is yours!
We would like to thank all our families for helping us learn our ‘talking parts’ and find costumes!
We couldn’t have done it without you!
