Thursday was Mr Responsible Day at Upton Infant School.
With the help of our Learning Skills Mascot, Mr Responsible, the children have been considering how to be responsible for themselves, others and property.
Year One children took responsibility for their local environment by carrying out a litter pick around Upton. In Year Two, the children decided to take responsibility for recycling - they had realised the the school milk is supplied in non-recyclable cartons, so decided to write to the milk company to ask if they could be supplied in recyclable bottles.
Each class also has become responsible for sponsoring a child in India to ensure that they receive an education just like the children of Upton. Throughout the year, children will consider ways to raise funds to sponsor their adopted pupil.
Children in Year One and Two also voted for their School Councillors - the results of the election will be announced on Friday.
