Great British Spring Clean

We are lucky to have such fabulous outdoor space at our school.  We are even luckier that we have such fabulous children, who can help to maintain it and keep it clean. 

Children in 4M spent an enjoyable morning litter picking along the stream which runs through ‘Narnia’ (our outdoor forest school space).  Not only were the children doing a fantastic job for the environment and local wildlife, they also ensured a cleaner surrounding for other classes, who come to the area for their forest school time.

4M also rolled their sleeves up, grabbed the bin bags and spent an afternoon picking litter from Heaton Park.  From the main gates, past the war memorial and onto the surrounding fields, 4M ensured that we are well on the way to making Manchester the country’s first ‘Tidy City’.  Well done everyone!


5B spent a lovely hour picking litter in Blackley Forest.  They were thrilled and proud to get a, “You’re doing a great job!” from a passing runner.

5H spent time attempting to clear litter from the side field near The Beefeater – it was tiring, but worthwhile work!  Sadly, it was just drop in the ocean, yet Year 5 are fully aware of how we can help to keep our country tidy – put litter in the bin as our little bit of litter DOES matter!

Look at the picture collage below to see how much rubbish the SSC class spotted on their recent litter picking trip through Blackley Forest.  It was really disappointing to see that so much rubbish had been left in the forest. The SSC class collected a big bin bag of rubbish and really enjoyed doing their bit to look after their local community even if it didn’t smell too great.
