We spent a week tallying up what classes were leaving on, and what was in the bins at different times in the day. We found that classes were recycling paper and fruit wate well but were leaving electrical devices on when not in use.
We collected all the used plastic bottles, crisp packets and put them in black bin bags and in assembly after the waste week campaign the eco council emptied the bags on the floor in assembly.
The point was yes we recycle but we are not reusing!!!!
We had an AMAZING week, we did so many activities including: Ks1 coloured munch crunch and his dog, we had waste wardens go round each class monitoring how much waste there was in the landfill bin and recycling. KS2 had fortune tellers to make.
We did a Waste Assembly and held a competition to make a musical instrument out of recycling.
We had such a lovely week, with the whole of the school getting involved. This week we are going to do a 'show and tell' assembly to show off all our fantastic work and share ideas to continue to reduce waste!
More and more compost is being put in the compost bin since our waste week started. Bannana skins, orange peels even apple cores are being put in the compost.
Our assembly this week was all about waste.
Brandhall had a man in from the Environmental Trust and did an assembly on why we need to reduce waste. Also classes did different activities on reduce waste.
The whole school took part in a Waste Week activities from designing wildlife areas, Will the Worm composting and junk material puppets. Our newly nominated Eco-Monitors are hot on the trail of wasteful teachers ... turn the whiteboards off!!
