Recycle Now has released a new range of curriculum-linked resources for Key Stages 1 and 2 focusing on recycling and sustainability, which is proving hugely popular with teachers. The ‘Action Packs’ are available to download free to use as classroom, assembly or home activities.
The resources use creative activities to help children aged 5 – 11 learn in a fun way how to take recycling into their own hands. Pupils can take part in a range of activities from creating animal characters from recyclable materials to making a film.
Teachers can also enter a monthly prize draw to win eco-friendly goodies such as recycling -themed books and seed bombs by uploading a photograph of their class taking part in the activity or the finished models.
Craig Stephens, Recycle Now Campaign Manager, said:
“We’ve had a fantastic response already, as more and more teachers are taking advantage of these great free resources to help them deliver the KS1 and KS2 curriculum. Children love the creative approach to recycling, as well as the opportunity to share their newly acquired knowledge.”
