Year five children from Golden Valley Primary School have been learning about waste and recycling for the past two terms.

During the Wipe Out Waste project, the young people found out about the impact of global warming and the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling waste.

To mark the end of the topic, the students collected different waste materials to fashion and customise their own outfits using their sewing skills.

They used newspapers and plastic bags to create skirts, dresses and hats before parading their creations in an end of term fashion show.
