Children clear community's litter

Children clear community's litter

Posted: 24th April 2019

The grounds around a primary school are sparkling clean after pupils took it upon themselves to pick up litter.

Year 3 pupils at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy took part in the GB Spring Clean in and around their school grounds.

As part of their topic on eco warriors, pupils have been looking at plastic pollution in the ocean, litter and climate change and were surprised at the amount of rubbish spotted around their school.

Using litter-pickers and gloves given to them by Harlow Council, pupils tackled the issue, as well as completing surveys on the amount of plastic used in the school.

Teacher Luke Wildig said: “We started looking at oceans and brought the topic all the way back to Harlow and our own doorstep.

“We used maths to analyse data on the amount of rubbish collected. During a 15-minute litter pick, we found 300 pieces of rubbish across a 50m area and filled 40 plastic bags.

“The children literally could not believe how much litter they found. It has had a real impact on the way they look at things and they now pick up litter in school during their break and lunchtimes. If it makes just a small impact, it will have been worth it.”

Headteacher Neil Stirrat said: “By taking part in the Spring Clean, Year 3 learnt the importance of keeping their community clean and tidy.”
