Learning how to make Hastings greener at school

Earth Day in Hastings School

Celebrating Earth Day.

Year 7s at Ark William Parker Academy celebrated the 45th anniversary of Earth Day by learning about Biodiversity and the effect humans have on the environment.  The students took different soil samples to look at the acidity of the earth around the local area. They also collected insect samples, by drawing them up through tubes, to see how even the smallest creatures play a role in our environment.

Callum Gladstone said, “I found out that the soil in our area has no acidity which is good for plants and animals.”

Kyle Churchman said, “I learned that it is important to explore nature and how we can change it.”

Thomas Buss said, “ I had fun going outside and learning about plants and insects and how the soil can change them; it was one of our best lessons.”
