A Rubbish Trip!

Year 5 Beech went on a great rubbish trip on Monday 27th March! We visited Recycle For Greater Manchester’s recycling plant at Bredbury. We learnt all about recycling and what needs to go in what bin. As part of our day we had a tour of the plant and completed activities to help us teach our parents about recycling. So come on ……. join in the fun and get recycling in those bins each week.DSCF4197 DSCF4198 DSCF4202 DSCF4217 DSCF4230
