Over the past couple of weeks every class in the school has been focussing on one of the 17 Global Goals. P6/7 decided to focus on Goal 14 ‘Life Under Water’. We have been learning about issues affecting our oceans such as overfishing and plastic pollution. Last week the children worked in pairs and groups to create posters about plastic pollution in ICT. Yesterday the class were split into groups for drama and planned and performed a ‘Newsround’ report, informing the rest of the class about the dangers to life under water. We also discussed how art can be used to communicate important messages and looked at some artwork which focusses on plastic pollution. We have started creating our own meaningful artwork to spread the message about keeping our oceans clean.
