Nappy Day!

When our headteacher, Mrs Gray, was about to leave school to start her maternity leave she needed the children’s help to decide which type of nappies to use once the baby has arrived. The children looked at three main types of nappies:

  • disposable
  • biodegradable
  • reusable.

They researched lots of facts about the advantages and disadvantages of each type of nappy.

They needed to consider which would be a good ‘eco’ choice for Mrs Gray as well as being a practical choice for a working mum. The majority of the class decided the best option would be to use a mixture of reusable and biodegradable nappies.

Perhaps Mrs Gray will let us know shortly whether she took note of the children’s advice!
