TEN-year-olds took to their school stage in a bid to change the world and beat plastic polluting our planet.

The Year 5 and 6 pupils from Wood Farm Primary School made a documentary about everything they had learned this term about plastics – the history, the recycling rules and how to repurpose single-use plastic that would otherwise be thrown away for unconventional things like bricks.

The children then took to the stage during a glitzy VIP night to premier the film in font of mums, dads, local councillors and even some of the Oxford Mail team.

In the documentary, which was inspired by David Attenborough's Blue Planet series, they told stories about a peach yoghurt that eventually ends up in the ocean and asked the audience if they'd be happy living as a hedgehog right now.

The year 6 girl said: "I'm guessing, absolutely not.

"They get stuck in plastic bottles and cans.

"But what can we do about it I hear you ask..? We can recycle things and squash cans before putting them into the bin.

"Recycling is the easiest way to save the planet."

Cutting down on plastics has been a hot topic this year and with the rise of 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg – children are being taken more seriously.

One school governor said it was 'reassuring' to see the world in safe hands with the next generation.

The teacher Helen Werrell said: "We watched Blue Planet 2 in class and the children were really receptive.

"We learnt about micro plastics and the food chain and how we can end up eating plastics.

"It was nice getting them hooked into it.

"We first learnt about how plastics started, like how they were first made to save the animals and now they're polluting the ocean.

"So we called the documentary 'Whose plastic is it anyway?'

"The whole school has been learning about plastics this term – Year 2 made eco bricks.

"We've also partnered with a school in South Africa so they've been doing the same, learning about plastics and polluting the planet.

"They've made eco bricks and have put them together using cement so they've made eco brick planters in their school playground.

"The children really want to save the planet now."

One year 5 pupil Aimee said she had really enjoyed learning about plastics. She said: "I found out that the foam on the apples when they come in a four pack in the shops isn't recyclable.

"So instead of buying the packs of apples you can just buy a bag of loose apples."

Her classmate Millie said: "I found out it takes 600 years for a fishing net to decompose and it becomes micro plastics which fish eat and then we eat. So we will be eating fish with plastic in."
