A village school decided to celebrate national waste week in a different kind of way.

Loddington Primary School students made robots out of any waste materials they no longer needed for the event.

The week, which ran from March 12 to 18, saw more than 80 schools take part in many different ways.

Headteacher Sue Walters said: “It helped children learn about our planet and know the responsibility we have to keep it clean.”

The idea came about when the eco-council decided making the robots out of waste materials would be a good idea.

About 20 children took part, making one robot each.

Ms Walters said: “They all loved it.

“It was a slow start but other children began to join in and created their robots.”
