Year 4 recently took part in a project with a local artist, James Byford as part of the Coastal Currents Festival. The theme was ‘Plastics Use and Recycling’. They created birds from plastic milk containers and made eco-bricks with the leftovers. When completed the birds were displayed at Bexhill Museum along with children’s work from other local schools.
