Green Hustle Festival

Southwold Primary were proud to help promote awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans. The work children created reusing plastic bottles formed part of a display at the Green Hustle Festival in Nottingham Market Square.

Green Hustle Festival

As part of the Green Hustle Festival today children made turtles and jellyfish by recycling plastic bottles. Our school Green Team led the project and enjoyed the story ‘The Whale who disappeared’ by Emma Websdale. We look forward to our work being part of the festival. 

Green Team- Wastebusters!

Our school Green Team are continuing our work as part of Wastebusters  to reduce waste in school, monitoring how much food is wasted at lunchtime, encouraging peers not to waste food and giving lunchtime stickers for empty plates

Waste Week

This week, the Green Team prepared their classes for Waste Week. Green Team Leaders, led and discussed the importance of not wasting food and why we need to recycle.  Using compost bins, which they created during Recycle Week last September, the pupils planted their own Begonia bulb. They also created posters to inform and persuade readers to not waste food.

Our pupils demonstrated a sound understanding and awareness of why we need to help protect and save our planet.

Composting with the ‘Green Team’

The Green Team have been teaching the rest of the school about recycling. Each class was taught about composting and made their own class compost bottle. Everyone in school will be filling up our school compost bins with compostable items so that in the Spring and Summer we can use this for planting.
