Year 5 students embarked on an exciting journey to learn more about creating a greener planet. During the session, they explored ways to reduce the use of fuels and plastics that contribute to pollution and climate change.

The students learned about the importance of reducing our reliance on non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels. They were also introduced to the concept of renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power, which are much more sustainable and less harmful to the environment.

Additionally, the students discussed ways to reduce plastic waste, which has become a major issue in recent years. They learned about the impact of plastic on the environment, particularly in our oceans, and how it can harm marine life. They also explored alternatives to single-use plastics, such as reusable bags, water bottles, and food containers.

The session was not just about learning but also about taking action. The students were encouraged to think of ways they could make a difference in their daily lives, such as reducing their carbon footprint by walking or cycling instead of taking the car and using less energy at home.
