Wilby school’s recent “Green” evening the children share their knowledge from a half-term of learning about the damage being caused to the environment.

The evening featured a collection of eye-catching performances, including some “incredible” recycled costumes produced by the children.

One year four pupil said they wanted everyone to know how important the issue is, while another in year six added that it was a “really fantastic” way to tell people how to help.

Arts co-ordinator Rachael Pickess said: “We shouldn’t underestimate our children-they do care passionately about their world and the future of our planet. Their message for the evening was so powerful because they were able to convey it so creatively through different art forms. This type of self-expression is so important.”
