Local schools get creative with plastic pollution

The next few weeks are shaping up to be busy and exciting for EcoTales.  Next week, we will be holding assemblies at Bishop Perrin C of E school in Whitton and Buckland Primary in Surrey.  You might remember that pupils at Buckland took part in workshops before our festival last year and they created awesome plastic jellyfish and milk bottle birds.

And we are really excited to be visiting St Mary’s and St Peter’s school in  Teddington and St Stephen’s in Twickenham the week after.

We will be talking to the pupils about our poetry and illustration challenge.  We want them to come up with pictures and poems to feature in the ebook we are creating called “The Monster we Made”.

We can’t wait to meet all the pupils and we will definitely be sharing some of their work with you.

There’s still time to send us your entries if you are or you know anyone aged 16 or under.  We’ve got all the information on our entries page as well as lots of inspiration and information.  The closing date for entries is 31st March.

  1. This is great. The kids seem to know a lot about the problem of plastics in the environment. Having kids creating awareness and sharing their knowledge on plastics will drive the message a long way. Keep up the good work
