A range of science investigations, art and maths activities took place at a Collier Row primary school for a special eco week.

St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School in Lowshoe Lane celebrated their Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (Steam) and Eco week from Monday, May 21 to Friday, May 25.

On Friday, the school enjoyed an Eco day where all of the pupils dressed in green and took part in various activities such as writing letters to Tesco about how to improve their plastic packaging and recycling reading books from home in a school book swap.

A pupil from each class became an eco warrior and was tasked with checking that teachers were locking computers and making sure that pupils were producing less waste and recycling.

Nicole, 9, from Year 4 said: “I can’t believe it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose - I will re-use my water bottle from now on.”

Aurelia, 11, from Year 6 also expressed her amazement at some of the new facts she learned.

“I couldn’t believe it when we learned that a nappy takes as long as a plastic bottle to decompose and a fishing line takes 600 years,” Aurelia said.

Some of the science investigations included planting seeds in egg boxes, making paper from recycled newspaper and ecosystems in a bottle.
