On Thursday we are taking the children to do litter picking around our area as we believe our children are the generation that will look after the planet. We will be doing several activities during the year for the children to understand the importance of our planet.
We will take all precautions for the safety of the children. We have made a bug hotel so we will also collect natural resources to add to our project.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
