Information For Torridge District Schools

Welcome to Information for schools in the Torridge District Council area - Mrs Recycle is funded by Torridge District Council to provide a FREE Waste Awareness Educational Presentations to all schools in this area
Learning about “Rubbish” requires an interactive approach to raise the issues of waste and its consequences for the environment, which Mrs Recycle does very well.

The lesson, workshop and/ or assembly with Mrs Recycle offers Interaction and "hands-0n"  activities, where suggestions that children make with their new knowledge are able to unconsciously influence behavioural change within their own family environment.

Mrs Recycle loves meeting everyone and will give talks to Key Stages 1 and 2 (Primary Schools):
Also to Cubs, Brownies, Rainbows Groups because of their age and ability of the class or group Mrs Recycle will use a variety of visual resources to aid topics for discussion and practical activities.
for Key Stages 3 and 4 (Secondary Schools):

Also to Guides, Scouts, most Youth Groups, Cadets - Mrs Recycle will use a variety of teaching aids to introduce topics for discussion. Giving follow-up suggestions, but students themselves will suggest extension activities after introductory sessions and / or power point presentations is usually suggested.
