Rubbish Rebels is a brand-new interactive resource kit for teachers, all about waste reduction & recycling for all primary schools in Cumbria.
It began last year as a pilot run by CAfS for Cumbria County Council, but it’s back for the new school year with a super new format.
- It’s an easy-to-use, self-contained package covering elements of the Key Stage 2 (and possibly Key Stage 1) curriculum.
- This free programme of lesson plans and activities includes videos especially made for Rubbish Rebels, worksheets and practical activity guides.
- Schools can take part at any point in the 2018-19 academic year.
- All schools that complete the full Rubbish Rebels programme will gain an award.
If you’re a teacher and think your class would love this fun way to learn about reducing waste and recycling, you can register your interest now and you’ll be first to receive the resource kit when it’s ready in the new 2018-19 term. Just fill in the form below.
Congratulations to St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School in Penrith, who won the 2017 Rubbish Rebels Challenge!
Twenty schools across Cumbria took part in our pilot Rubbish Rebels Challenge to reduce the amount of waste generated in school and at pupils’ homes.
During the 2017 spring and summer terms, a group of pupils from each school took part in a Rubbish Rebels workshop run by CAfS on behalf of Cumbria County Council. And then the challenge began!
The families of every pupil at the schools were invited to make pledges to cut down on waste, with points for every pledge made. St Catherine’s gained the most points, and won the grand prize of £500!
