Film: Premier League Primary Stars Plastic Pollution Challenge

Audio described with transcript


My name is Alex Scott, and I was the captain for my team, Arsenal.

I've heard you've all been learning about ocean health and the use of single-use plastics.

It's something I'm also doing in my life. Making those simple every-day changes.

It's such a cool campaign and I'm proud to be a part of it.

And it's great to have all of you involved too.

We are launching a competition to challenge you to come up with a school or class pledge to join the Sky Ocean Rescue #PassOnPlastic campaign.

So, what is a pledge?

Basically, it's a promise, an agreement or guarantee that you are going to do something.

Thinking about it, you may have already written a pledge in your PSHE education lesson.

But this challenge is about working together as a class or a school.

So, what kind of thing could your class do?

You all look busy, what are you doing?

PUPILS>> We've been thinking of some ideas how to get involved.

ALEX SCOTT>> Really? That's fantastic.
Who's gonna to share first?

PUPILS>> You can hold an end of term plastic-free sports day.

ALEX SCOTT>> I like that!

PUPILS>> We can use paper straws instead of plastic straws.

ALEX SCOTT>> Good one!

PUPILS>> Let's use refillable water bottles.


PUPILS>>  How about an old plastic toy swap shop?

ALEX SCOTT>> Or how about getting your football involved in seeing what you can do together?

ALEX SCOTT>> Some really good ideas, which has hopefully got you lot thinking.

Entering the prize draw is easy.
Ten lucky classes will be picked to attend a day at the Sky Academy Studios where you can make a film about ocean plastics pollution featuring your challenge.

One school will be chosen from a prize draw to have a  very special visitor:
Plasticus, the Sky Ocean Rescue whale will come to your school.

We'll also bring the one and only Premier League trophy.

ALL>> Ooooh!

ALEX SCOTT>> And maybe a few other special guests.

Good luck and remember to hashtag
