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”

We have been awarded the Fairtrade award ‘Fairachiever’ which recognises that our school is a Fairtrade school. Our Green flag has also been renewed for a further 2 years. These awards recognise the excellent work in school where we teach children about how they can grow up to look after their world and the people in it.
