CHILDREN at Berkswich Primary School have been learning about the importance of recycling.
Year five students wrote letters to the Newsletter, persuading readers to recycle and informing them of its importance.
Class teacher Mrs Lezleigh Ennis said: “We did a project on the Earth and beyond which included the ozone layer and what we can do to protect it.
“We did some persuasive writing which included writing a letter to an editor and one child asked ‘can we do it?’ so we did.”
The letters highlighted the importance of protecting the planet and explained how families can recycle more in their homes.
Ethan Evans, nine, said he learned how recycling can protect wildlife while Eleanor Cope, nine, added: “We need to recycle more, or the planet will be covered in rubbish.”
The school has run a recycling programme for over five years.
