Recycling Week 2019 | September 30, 2019

Recycling Week 2019
The children picking rubbish out of sand.

We recently held a Recycling Week here at school. Our aim was to ensure that the children know:

  • What is pollution and what link does it have to recycling?
  • What is recycling and why is it important?
  • What impact can you have to help our environment?

We did this by carrying out a number of discussions and activities with all the year groups.

Key Stage 1 did such things as looking at the story of the Messy Magpie and how collecting litter ruined her habitat. From this the children had a discussion about the impact of pollution and wrote a poem about 5 ways we can help the Earth. This culminated in an activity to sort through rubbish left in different terrains to see what needed to be recycled and what thrown into the rubbish.

Key Stage 2 watched the BBC documentary The Blue Planet, and followed it with a discussion about how waste, including plastic waste is having an extreme negative effect on our planets oceans. They made a poster showing 5 ways to help the Earth and carried out an Environmental Review where they answered check boxes and left comments about how our school meets up to the expectations of the Eco Schools Ten Sustainable Topics.

Fairtrade Week 2019
The Fairtrade display showing all the work the children did throughout the week.

The school have held a Fairtrade week.

We started the week with a whole school assembly about Fairtrade and then each year group carried out research into why Fairtrade is important and why we should be supporting it. The children then made posters to encourage people to buy Fairtrade products. Year 2 wrote letters from the point of view of Fairtrade farmers, telling people why Fairtrade helps them and their families. Year 5 and 6 held a discussion on whether we should buy Fairtrade chocolate and the arguments both for and against.

All this work culminated with a display board we have put up in school that displays all aspects of the work we have done throughout the week.
