Eco-bricks – we need your plastic!

As part of the upcoming Science Week (8 – 17 March 2019) our KS2 pupils will make something called an ‘Eco-brick’. An Eco-brick is a reusable building block created by packing clean and dry used plastic into a plastic bottle. Eco-bricks enable us to take personal responsibility for our plastic by using the incredible properties it has and reducing the amount that ‘goes to waste’.

We would appreciate if parents/pupils could start collecting clean and dry plastics for us to use to help create our bricks. Plastics can be brought in to Mrs Carruthers at HMS from Monday 25 February 2019.
