Year 7 visit The Deep

On Thursday 29th November, Year 7 students had to opportunity to visit The Deep in Hull. This trip followed the launch of the Delta Academies initiative to reduce plastic usage across the academies. 

During the visit, students were split into two groups and were able to take time to explore and learn about the marine life from staff, with lots of interesting questions being asked. 

Students were also given the opportunity to investigate the effects of plastics, and in particular, microbeads on marine life, the reasons as to why they are creating the problems in the oceans, and what we can do to try to reduce it.
