John Lewis Innovation Challenge

Year 5/6 children have entered two teams into this years competition and this was their task.


This year’s Innovation Challenge will get your pupils, aged 9-11, working in teams to answer the following question set by our Sustainability Managers: How would you reinvent a school blazer to give it a new life?

We have reclaimed a selection of schools blazers. Each team which has successfully registered, will receive a blazer to reinvent, posted directly to their school. Using the blazer to bring their ideas to life, pupils will consider different ways they can turn this product into something new and how this might help to solve a key sustainability issue: waste.
