We had heaps of fun in Waste Week and now we take part in Waste Free Wednesday when children either bring a waste free packed lunch to school and earn two team points, or eat all their hot dinner and earn one team point.
We sorted our waste during our Lunchtime Crunchtime Week and made a bar chart of the different materials we collected. We found out that plastic created the highest amount of waste. Now we are looking at ways to reduce this and recycle more.
We took part to try and change peoples perception of the environment & to help people to appreciate thing, rather than take them for granted! We are a small school, yet generated a lot of waste! The students also brought the message home.
We completed our waste week campaign and found that we produced a lot of food waste that was just being disposed of in a landfill. We got more compost bins around school including in classrooms and a brown food disposal bin for the kitchen.
We completed our waste week during April and we were amazed at how much waste we created!! We have made a huge effort to recycle and raise awareness of the rubbish we create and our eco team have noticed a huge difference in our levels of waste!
Even though we are a very small school, we were surprised at how much waste 8 children created each week! We have always recycled, but hadn't thought about food waste.We are buying a composter for the garden so that we can recycle that too.
our waste week stared today. The Eco Group helped the other students sort the waste at lunchtime into 3 bins, a big change for us! We are collecting clothes for 'Phil' the bag and filling a skip, as well as having a uniform recycle - busy busy busy!
We are holding our waste week at the end of May. Our eco-committee are presenting an assembly. We have our council waste education department coming to run workshops for two days, and are having key stage carousels of activities.
We are holding our waste week this week, and really enjoying the resources. Our pupils are learning what we can do to reduce our waste, and thinking hard about how to resuse or recycle things.
Waste Week is a great, practical way to teach children how to reduce, reuse, recycle and not to waste food. The older children are enjoying being Waste Inspectors and are taking a leading role in reducing waste at lunchtimes and breaktimes.
