The children have been learning about the importance of reusing and recycling materials, and this school's Christmas tree this year has been made out them.

They used items such as wood, corks, cardboard and even old books, and Cheryl Singleton, the chief executive of the Avocet Academy which runs the school, said the result was a beautiful tree which they hoped would encourage people to think sustainably.

She said: "The children replaced our traditional 'glitter and glue' day in school this year by only using materials that are eco-friendly such as cardboard, wood and dried fruits.

"The decorations look really festive and every pupil has contributed to making our school look so special.
