On Thursday July 11th Year 5 went to the MRF at Ford which was a prize from a competition that we had entered. Indigo Class learnt all about the types of materials that can or cannot be placed in the recycling bin, what to do with different items when they are no longer wanted and how to reduce the amount of rubbish that is produced. The main event was an escorted tour of the recycling plant when we all had to wear hard hats, gloves, safety goggles, a high vis jacket and listened to Jo through a microphone! It was very interesting to see how the machines sort the different types of materials and the children all designed a bag to take home.
