Berry Hill Primary

A huge thank you, and congratulations to all the students at Berry Hill Primary School for sending through their fantastic recycling poems!

I have now read through them all and picked the winner of the competition as...

I particularly liked the verse:

“Don’t throw it in the sea
Don’t hurt a single bee
You never know, it can start with you and me”

That is so true, it starts with us, right now!

Congratulations again for all your poems, I thought they were fab!

Good luck with your writing this term!


There’s some kind of rubbish
That we want to avoid
We don’t want all the animals destroyed.

If you can see pollution
There’s always a solution
Even though there can be confusion.

You shouldn’t give it a kick
You should do a litter pick
You definitely shouldn’t feed it to a chick.

If you throw plastic in the ocean
It can cause some commotion
We don’t want people with hurt emotion.

Don’t throw it in the sea
Don’t hurt a single bee
You never know, it could start with you and me.

I don’t like plastic
It’s definitely not fantastic
Oh, where you wondering?
Well, no my favourite material isn’t elastic.

Head over to


to see more fantastic work
