Youngsters showed their creative flair for recycled fashion as they took to an outdoor catwalk to highlight climate change.

After learning about protecting the planet, pupils at Heacham Junior School researched an environmental issue and designed and made an outfit using recycled materials to represent it. 

At the fashion show on Monday they showcased their creativity in the form of garments made from a host of recyclable items.

  Forest School teacher Emily Riddington, who delivers sessions on the outdoors, said: “Their enthusiasm within the sessions led to a climate change protest and now the children have chosen to take a step further by deciding to do a recycled fashion show. 

“The children are so passionate about the environment and feel so empowered to make a difference. I am incredibly proud of them all.

“The children at Heacham Junior have already received an eco-award, but want to keep doing more to help protect our planet.”
