Children raise awareness of plastics in the ocean by creating shark and seahorse from bottles
PUBLISHED: 10:00 23 November 2017
A 6ft shark has been made out of plastic by schoolchildren at a school in Worle.
The year three and four pupils have been learning about the harmful effect of plastic in the oceans.
The children, with the help of learning support assistant and artist Amy Davis, have created the Junk Jaws shark and a plastic seahorse which are based in the library.
As part of the topic, called ‘we can make a difference’, the children have been learning about plastic and how to save the oceans and marine life.
The youngsters have learned about the Cleaner Coastlines campaign being run in Weston-super-Mare, and they have written poetry and created artworks and crafts about the topic.
Their work also includes writing stories about explorers.
Later in the term, the children will also come up with their own ideas on how to stop plastic ending up in the sea
