make learn, and do days we decided to use the bottles to make a plastic bottle wind break.
Making the wind break:
To make the wind break we glued 4 bottles end to end to make a taller bottle. We made lots of these long bottles and took them out to the fence at the back of the play park. We laid the bottles against the fence the fence 1 by 1 and as we went along we rolled wire netting over it and fastened it to each post with fencing staples until we got to the last post.
Some of it is starting to fall but most of it’s still standing.

We made posters to invite people to the school when we started Eco schools. Barbara Cass and Dianne Hull came to the school to help. We looked at school grounds, energy, water, health/ wellbeing, biodiversity, waste minimisation, litter and transport.

We looked in lots of catalogues, but could not find anything, so Andrew found one that had one in. Then we went down to the office and filled in the order form.
When it came, we put it outside the school door and we are going to connect it to the drainpipe.Harry and Alice
We looked through lots of catalogues and found nothing until the last catalogue, then we found a perfect wall mount bin for £80.10.
This bin is good because there is a small hole to put your litter in so it doesn’t blow out and away.
Now we hope people will put their litter in the bin.

· A litter picker because some people are littering in the playground.
· Bike shelter because some people cycle to school and their bikes are getting rusty.
How we will try to do this:
· We are still trying to get a litter picker with a lower postage price.
· The JRSO officers (P7) are trying to find how to get money for the bike shelter.
