OUT AND ABOUT IN OUR SCHOOL OUTSIDE ENVIRONMENT


Litter Picking at Waterthorpe

Following consultation with some of our children we found that they felt there was a problem with litter around our local area, so as part of our continued work to keep our school and the surrounding area litter free we decided to do weekly class litter picks.

After a recent litter pick with a class of Year One children they were asked what they thought about litter and the weekly litter picks. All the children said they enjoyed litter picking and these are some of their individual comments as to why they feel the litter picks are important.

“If we pick up litter our world is a nicer place to live.”

“It’s good when we all have a litter picker because we can all go out together.”

“It’s good that we pick up litter because it makes our world clean.”

“It’s good that we do litter picks or it would be a horrible place to live”
