Year 4 Gordon Marsden Visit

Year 4 and Gordon Marsden

Year 4 were visited by Gordon Marsden ( MP for Blackpool South) and his PA Andrew Betteridge last Friday. During the Spring term, the class wrote individual letters to Mr Marsden about the dangers of plastic pollution as part of a persuasive writing project taught by student teacher Mr Bradley. Mr Marsden was so impressed with the children’s letters that he wanted to come and meet them to talk about ‘Green’ issues. The children had a very lively discussion with Mr Marsden and were able to tell him about all the environmentally friendly things that they can do at school and home to help protect the planet. These suggestions included: reusable water bottles, bags for life, using recycling bins, picking up litter and many more. Well done Year 4 and Mr Bradley!
