Visit from otley the elephant

Otley the elephant came to a whole school assembly to talk about recycling.

We learnt that we need to separate our rubbish to put into the correct recycling bins.

We also learnt that only plastic bottles are allowed in the purple plastic bin otherwise they would go into the black household rubbish bin.

We all enjoyed this visit.
