The Lorax


Many students in S23Jade have been thinking and talking about the environmental issues raised in the Dr Seuss story “The Lorax”.

They have discussed, acted out and spoken at a town meeting using the different perspectives of the creatures involved in the story.

As a “wrap up” activity students were asked to design a Thneed Factory that was more environmentally positive and sustainable than the one in the story. They were asked to consider the energy used, the pollution released and the effect on the living creatures around the factory, the noise and the transportation of the finished Thneeds around the country.

There were many fantastic ideas and suggestions made by the students – please look at the following pictures of parts of their work.


What do you think? What would you do to improve the environment at the Thneed Factory? Leave a comment below.

The Lorax – Our Play


Last Friday we had to lead the school assembly and present a performance item as well.

Some people volunteered to conduct the assembly and others wanted to perform, whilst the rest preferred to work “backstage” and help organise and move chairs and props around.  

So everyone had a job to do! We all worked together to ensure that the assembly and the performance ran smoothly. We felt proud of ourselves because each of us took responsibility for what we had to do, and we all fulfilled our roles to the best of our abilities. Well done us 😀

Here are some photos of us on the stage and later in our classroom. Stay tuned for the video – it is coming (I promise – just editing it – MrsP)
