The Big Battery Hunt
With the help of pupils from across the UK the Big Battery Hunt has been making a difference to battery recycling, collecting 2 million used batteries so far – and they are still pouring in!

“As a school we think this initiative is fabulous. The whole school have really got behind the project with hundreds upon hundreds of batteries flowing in.”
– Liz Copeland, Seabridge Primary School
The challenge is accompanied by a resource which includes detailed teacher notes, an engaging assembly presentation, a progress tracker and an optional KS2 pupil booklet to work through in class or set as homework. It will help teach pupils the importance of recycling while challenging them to several curriculum-linked maths tasks so make sure to register your interest for next year.
