Last week was recycling week! Watch the BTN video about recycling. What did you find out about the history of recycling, what about plastic or bin audits?
I learnt that cardboard can go in the recyling bin or the green waste bin! Post a comment about what you found out about recycling, also what can you do to be a better recycler?
Hi Bowen! Thanks very much for your postcard. It’s great to hear that you are having a fun trip! we are all very jealous. Everything is good in Barwon Heads. The school has been having lots of building works and our new basketball courts are ready! In maths we have been doing problem solving with word problems. In reading we have been looking at different picture book authors including; Margaret Wild, Bob Graham, Bruce Whatley, Colin Thompson and Nick Bland. We have also been having my puppy Stevie in the classroom and everyone is teaching her to be a good dog!
3B can you update Bowen on some things that have been happening at school and any other exciting happenings? Post a comment!
I haven’t been writing in the past few days because my mum has injured her leg and cannot walk on it so other than that we have been to a place called Club Med in Opio near Nice. It’s a hotel with an all you can eat restaurant from morning to night. We did archery with my aunts, uncles and cousins. We were supposed to have done tightrope but it rained the rest of the day. On the last night there was a prize for whoever won one of the sports like archery and ping pong. I won the archery prize and mum got a trophy for setting up the trivia quiz. The trophy said “you won! (who cares)”. So since my mum has hurt her leg we are staying at my grandma’s in Avignon for a few days.

Tell me in your own words two things you learned from watching!

Our schoolyard has too much rubbish in it. It’s not rude to eat nude food. Nude food is very important for our environment. But what is nude food? Nude food mean bringing lunch boxes that you can use over and over again and bringing containers that are washable to avoid using plastic. Here are some examples of good lunch boxes and containers. So when you are packing your lunch next time try to use Nude food! Let’s help reduce our impact on the environment and the rubbish in the school ground.
Do you use nude food? What are some tips or questions you might have? Post a comment!
Last week we wrote pledges promising to do something for the environment.
My pledge was to always bring my own cup instead of getting a takeway cup when I get a coffee. It’s really important because otherwise this waste goes to landfill. And coffee cups don’t break down! I want to reduce my impact on the environment.
What was your pledge and why is it important for our planet?
Last Friday was Bowen’s last day at Barwon Heads Primary School as he’s going on a fantastic trip with his family! We’re all going to miss him but we can keep in contact with him through this post. We’re all looking forward to hearing about your adventures Bowen!!
