Nursery and Foundation All of our workshops aim to be fully interactive. At this stage the programme is short, simple, very visual and most importantly, informative. Arrange a ‘Sammy the Squirrel’ visit! We will call out to your school or nursery and read an anti-litter story with the help of puppets and storyboards. We also have seasonal workshops such as the Christmas ELF, who comes out to read a Christmas anti-litter story. We recently held the ‘Captain Cleanup and General Grime Puppet Show’ to great acclaim. These are advertised through City Matters magazine so keep a close eye out for them and; book early as demand is high! Click on the video to hear the story
Key Stage 1 and 2 During a 45minute/1 hour session, our officers will hold the relevant workshop that is engaging, interactive and fun. The key features of these workshops are that they; are linked to the NI Syllabus and especially to ‘The World Around Us’ and ‘PDMU’, are packed with fun activities and video clips, focus on group work; and can be tailored to your school’s needs, for example, an after schools eco-club.
Post Primary Feeding into syllabus areas such as Environment & Society, Citizenship and Mutual Understanding, our workshops are perfect in passing the anti-litter message to young people at post primary. Workshops take the form of electronic quizzes, with ‘fastest fingers first’ questions dotted throughout the session. The students answer litter-based questions using Qwizdom interactive handsets, the results of which are then electronically analysed. We can tailor all of our workshops to suit your needs – just let us know when booking a visit
Post Primary – continued We also run special projects throughout the year for Key Stages 3 and 4 – keep an eye out for these in City Matters and on our website. ‘Rubbish Acting’ involved an acting workshop led by a professional actress to examine littering behaviour through acting out. ‘Litterflicks’ had an expert in motion animation visit school to hold workshops. The students were then encouraged to make their own anti-litter animations and enter them into our Litterflicks Competition.
Additional Resources Following the delivery of one of our workshops, we aim to support the teachers in continuing the promotion of the anti-litter message in the classroom. Organising a cleanup We provide Hi-viz jackets Litterpicks Gloves Bags These can be kept by the school for use in further cleanups.
Additional Resources Our new Anti-Litter Education Resource Pack for Primary Schools with interactive CD can help you plan you further anti-litter activities.
