Visit from Viridor

10th June 2019
On Monday the 10th June U.K. and Austria classes had a visit from Jo Norman from Viridor. She told us all about the machines at the Ford Recycling Plant and how they sorted the different materials from our recycle bins. The children then explored a huge selection of materials that Jo brought with her; thinking about which could be recycled, taken to the dump or whether we should take them somewhere else, such as a charity shop. All the children then got to decorate a reusable cotton bag to take home. They added on recycling symbols and images of rubbish trucks by tracing them through the fabric. We are looking forward to seeing them reusing their bags and hearing about their recycling work as they move up through St. Mary’s.
