After watching footage of otters caught in plastic litter in their local river, Year 6 pupils organised a river clean up project. They spent the day clearing over 20 bin bags of litter from the river and surrounding areas together with parents and members of their local community who came to join in.
"‘The children used brilliant planning and organisational skills to get the project sorted. They developed independence of thought and have made a real difference to their local community."
