It brought back memories of St Annes Primary in Nantwich where I first learned all about the environment. Mrs Nord made us bury bits of plastic, banana skin and other rubbish in a big tub of soil. After literally forever (about 4-5 weeks I think) we dug them out to see what had happened. This lesson was one of many on this new and exciting topic and is why a whole generation of people like me grew up knowing the meaning of the words - biodegradable, biodiversity and recycling. Primary school teachers and their assistants can change the behaviour of a whole nation and it was lovely to say well done to a number of them who have already changed it for the better.
