Much to our disappointment, we have found that our ASDA competition is only open to KS2. If you are in a younger year and would like to enter, you are welcome to draw one but will not be in the running for the prize. All of your teachers have been given booklets of fun, anti- plastic related activities.

This year, the word on everyone's lips has been climate change.This is where the world slowly heats up and destroys animals habitat. It is very important to do all that you can to stop it.First News, the only national children's weekly newspaper, has some ways to help in their wonderful world pledge:

Avoid single use plastics- like straws and carrier bags 

• Reduce, re-use and recycle- put things in the correct bin, use both sides of paper and buy less of something

• Switch off lights and electrical devices, like TVs, when leaving the room

• Try not to waste food and throw less of it away- if someone cooks a big vat of pasta but only serves half of it, put it in the fridge or freezer, not the bin

• Use a washing line instead of a tumble dryer

• Buy more seasonal food - don't buy pears out of season as they will be flown in.

• Insulate homes- to save heating

• Switch your family car to an electric one as you can and walk or cycle short distances

• Encourage adults to use video conferencing instead of business travel-instead of them flying to

America to meet a colleague, tell them to use Skype 

• Eat less meat, milk, cheese and butter- so less roast and cauliflower cheese

• Demand low carbon in every consumer product

• Take trains and buses instead of planes

For the last part of our school year we will be participating in a very exciting competition managed by ASDA. They have launched a competition to design the best poster about the global plastic problem. Each participant gets an underwater sticker and an entry booklet, which has a details form that you MUST fill in to enter as well as a space to design it and some fun facts. They will not except any entries that aren't on the sheet so if you would like one, ask your eco- warriors.The prizes are unbelievable:

1st prize – A £1,000 Asda Gift Card for the winning pupil, and a cheque for £20,000 to the school of the winning pupil

2nd Prize – A £500 Asda Gift Card for the winning pupil, and a cheque for £10,000 to the school of the winning pupil

3rd Prize – A £250 Asda Gift Card for the winning pupil, and a cheque for £5,000 to the school of the winning pupil.

Only 1 entry per pupil is permitted. Schools can submit as many individual entries as it likes as long as those entries are from children within the age limit of 7-11 years old.
