'Milk-loo' construction is lesson in recycling for Skipton pupils

Youngsters from Christ Church School in Skipton are prepared for winter – they’ve got their own igloo.
The Topaz class of reception and year one children have been learning about ‘Our Frozen Planet’ and the Little Polar Bear books by Hans de Beer.
To bring the topic to life, teachers constructed a lifesize igloo in the classroom, made from about 400 empty milk containers.
Teacher Suzie Brown said: “The children were asked to bring in milk cartons but not told what they were for.
“We wanted to get a really good “Wow” from them when they walked in the room and saw it. They loved it.”
