Environmentally aware pupils at Peartree Spring Primary School in Stevenage showed their green side on Friday when they took part in a series of recycling projects.
Pupils from across the school on Hydean Way took part in classroom activities and also tidied litter and rubbish from different areas inside and outside the school.
Year 5 teacher Mrs Imrana Chowdhury who helped organise the project, said: “It’s something the children really connect with an enjoy.
“They are the future so it’s really important they have an awareness of how to look after the environment. It’s all about saving energy and recycling and finding ways we can do these things in the school.
“It went really well. They hear about environmental issues on television or being talked about and they really enjoy getting involved in it.”
Peartree is an Eco-School which means each class has elected environmental representatives who focus on raising awareness about green issues.
More than 17,000 schools are registered as Eco-Schools in the UK.

Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy runs the scheme in England.
It provides a framework for learning and action around nine topics – biodiversity, energy, litter, global citizenship, healthy living, school grounds, transport, waste and water.
