Team Thunberg Year 4

Beach Clean!


As part of the Isle of Wight Million Mile Beach Clean, Alexandra spent her weekend helping to clear our island beaches of rubbish! 

On Wednesday 15th September, she is asking as many people from school as possible to meet on Appley Beach at 3pm to help clean the beach.


Look at some of the rubbish that has been collected and disposed of!

















Team Name!

The children have been busy in this first week back discussing a team name for their class. The name had to be that of someone who has made a positive impact or contribution either recently or in the past.  They chose Greta Thunberg, the Swedish environmental activist, as their team name beause of her impact on bringing to the public attention - and talking to politicians and government leaders all over the world - about the effects of climate change on the planet.


Each class made a team flag which will be displayed in class throughout the year and illustrated it with what they agreed were the characteristics of a good team.
