On Tuesday 26th March, we called on everyone at Crab Lane to improve the environment on their doorstep by taking part in 'The Great British Spring Clean', a campaign led by Keep Britain Tidy!
We started the day with a whole school assembly. During the assembly we shared what children would be doing, how to be safe when litter picking and expectations when leaving the school grounds.
We had representatives from BIFFA waste services to help lead the day and they brought resources for our litter pick.
We all wore high-vis jackets and gloves, parent helpers too and we took turns, using pickers, to clean up our school grounds and surrounding area.
Taking turns, every child went outside to pick up litter in our school grounds and surrounding area. We loved doing it but were really shocked at how much litter there was around the Crab Lane School entrance.
We also got to meet Wendy, one of Manchester's Street Monsters!!!
• Wendy is such a friendly Wasteater, she loves to talk to people when she is out and about and find out how they recycle.
Year 6 wrote letters to send out to the residents of Blackley.
