Starting our litter picking journey

Everyday, 4 children from year 5/6 are on litter picking duty. They walk around the school playground in pairs, with one caddy bin between them. They use the bins as they can be emptied, washed and used again daily, avoiding use of plastic bags. They return with the bins almost half full everyday. 

This photo shows what a typical litter pick, across one week looks like.

In the next few weeks, as part of ‘The Great British Spring Clean,’ we will be going outside of school in the local area to litter pick, one afternoon a week. We will have 10 different volunteers across year 1-6 every week. Through this, the year 5 and 6 children can support the younger children, engaging in conversations around what they have learnt about waste and where it goes.
