6JFB Clean the up the Beach

As part of our persuasive writing unit in literacy and linked to an assembly presentation by SAS, we wanted to experience first hand the kinds of marine litter washed up on our shores. We took the samples back to school to weigh and used an Excel spreadsheet to record the weights of plastics, organic and ‘other’ material in our samples. The pupils then used it to calculate the % of plastic in the sample. These statistics will be used in a PowerPoint advert about recycling, a speech and formal letter to government.
