Children's environment lessons at the Nest

CHILDREN at The Nest have been learning more about the challenges facing the environment.

Pupils at the school marked the World Wide Fund for Nature's Earth Hour, where people are encouraged to turn off lights and electrical items to raise awareness of climate change.

Staff turned off the electricity and children worked entirely with pens and paper before going outside to plant flower seeds in the school's garden and pick litter from the grounds.

The Nest is part of the Snowdon Village group of alternative schools for children learning outside mainstream education and is based on the same site as Frome Vale Academy.

Centre lead Hope Allen said pupils then used different types of plastics and rubbish to create a display about the dangers of plastic pollution to sea creatures.
