Best of Bristol Virtual Field Trip: Recycling Revelations

Age: Year 3, 4, 5 & 6

Duration: 5 minutes

Subject: Design & Tech.

Theme: Waste

Have you ever wondered what happens to clothes when we don’t want them anymore?


Explore the issues of textile recycling in fascinating and fun ways, through our Best of Bristol virtual field trip to the Bristol Textile Recyclers Factory and the related resources. Amongst other activities, pupils can learn how to turn a t-shirt into a tote bag, take part in in some letter writing with a textile twist and find out how to hold a Great Textile Collection at their school.


These learning materials would make a fantastic introduction to topic work around recycling and waste, but also work as standalone lessons with maths challenges at the end of the pupil field notes resource.
