Year 3 Go Composting!

This term in Science we have been learning all about rocks and soils.

This week in Science we made compost bins, as we were learning about where soil comes from and how it is formed.

We used plastic bottles, cardboard, fruit and veg scraps, newspaper cuttings and compost to make the ideal home for our composting worms. Over time, the worms will help break down all the organic matter to create compost for the plants in our homes and gardens.

The worms, which were delivered by Amazon Prime, arrived safely and securely into our school. The children had a great time picking them out of their temporary home ready for a nice, warm compost pot.

What do you think? Maybe you could start composting food waste at home?
