RBPS Eco-Club

Put your waste in it’s place

Richard Bonington Primary School, have had Amy and Ella Meek visit our school to promote their campaign about reducing plastic. 

The whole school enjoyed answering questions from the girls quiz about plastic. They were shocked to hear about how animals and birds are suffering from the plastic waste that hasn't gone to the proper channels to be wasted!

Amy and Ella are going to keep coming to RBPS, to offer advise to RBPS Eco-Club on ways we can recycle plastic and suggest ideas on what we can use instead of using plastic.

Eco- Warriors!

Eco-Club were invited to The Arboretum, where they explored areas, looking for insects through microscopes and then used an insect identifier to name them.

SWAC (Schools Waste Action Club) visited our school to talk to the children in KS1 about how worms turn unwanted food into compost. The kids enjoyed having a hands on experience with the worms

SWAC came back to talk to KS2 in assembly. She told them about different ways we can recycle our waste. Making bowls out of recycled magazines or even a greenhouse out of plastic bottles.

Then SWAC talked to each individual class about how to reduce their lunch time waste and reduce using plastic.
