Elder Class ventured out into the local community to clear litter as part of 'Environment Week'. It was part of 'The Big Tidy Up', an event that forms part of England's biggest-ever litter pick. The children, accompanied by some KS2 members of the Eco Council, gathered litter along the old disused railway line that runs through the back of Newtown from Elmbury Lodge to Morrisons.
The children wore tabards and gloves and some had the use of litter pickers. Overall, 8 large bags of rubbish were collected and the children were extremely surprised by how much they had gathered in such a short space of time. Many passers by stopped to congratulate the children on what they were doing. It was great to see our core drivers of Positive Attitude, Environment and Community so clearly on display.
