Sarah Hickling, nursery manager, said: “We are currently learning about animals and their habitats at the nursery and have been looking at the impact litter has on the animals wellbeing.
“We arranged an outing to Millennium Green, a local beauty spot, to observe and collect litter.
“The children we shocked in how much discarded rubbish they found that can impact on local wildlife.
“Following on from this, we are going to be looking at the litter in the ocean and how it also impacts on the occupants of the sea.
“The children have really been engaged in the litter picking and understand the importance of disposing of rubbish correctly in designated bins.”
