Dudley Wood Primary School and Pre-School
This year, as part of learning about the Sustainable Development Goals as part of our Curriculum, some Year 6 pupils have formed an environmental team. We are going to be working on various projects.
Macmillan Cancer Support
Thank you everyone!!
675 tubs collected = £54.00 for
Throughout January, we collected chocolate tubs which we then took to a local Greene King pub. They then took them to a recycling plant where they received 8p per tub. Greene King donated all of the money they received to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Our Environment Team launched this project by visiting each class to tell them about it, writing a letter to parents and collecting the tubs from each class every Wednesday, in January. We then stacked and packed all of the tubs ready to be delivered to a local Greene King pub.
We kept a record of how many tubs each class collected and the class which collected the most won a prize … a (full) tub of chocolates!
In total, Dudley Wood Primary School collected 675 tubs! Which means that is 675 tubs not going in a landfill and £54.00 has been donated to Macmillan Cancer Charity.
Class 1RH collected the most tubs with an amazing 144!
The Y6 Environment Team have organised a Litter Picking Team. They work in pairs and small groups and create a rota to collect litter from around school.
Ultimately, the team hope that they won’t be needed as everyone should look after our school and put litter in a bin.

All types of litter take time to degrade, so the ideal thing is not to drop it in the first place. Here is the average time it takes for some commonly discarded litter to decompose.
