Itโ€™s my final author visit to @HeartEdTrust tomorrow - virtual this time but hopefully just as much fun with the activities and green challenges! 
Then on Thursday I have another school visit hosted by @stories_sea @_Reading_Rocks_ and a zoom visit to a US library! 
Busy week! ๐Ÿคช @Fi_BGB Dr Fiona Barker Videos and pictures

@rachel_wyatt2 @mcsuk @leafyseascape @Ffion_Mitchell @cathgem2000 @CescaBevan @EylesLauren @lizzie_prior Wow, I like your planning ahead ๐Ÿ˜
My tip is to keep a plastic jar
Choose a clear one so you can see what youโ€™re throwing away
Do a week of putting any plastic waste in it before #plasticfreejuly and then try again at the end to see the difference ๐Ÿ˜€
