Class 5 visit to Amey Cespa Recycling Centre

29th September 2017
Class 5 went to visit Amey Cespa Recycling Centre. This is part of our recycling topic. We learned how to Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. We had a coach tour of the site, and watched some of the huge machines moving the waste around. It was really smelly! We had to wear hard hats and hi- vis jackets. We used recycled plastic milk bottles to make toy elephants and a plant pot each. We planted peas and spring bulbs. We will watch the bulbs grow over the next few months, and make observational drawings of changes we see. We saw the huge composting area and were able to compare this with the wormery composters we have in class.
