Our school is very proud to have registered as an Eco-School which recognises our commitment to developing strategies that sustain and enhance resources and the environment.
We have just appointed our new 2020/21 Eco-Council Ambassadors for each class and they will be meeting as regularly as possible to ensure we raise environmental awareness, improve our school environment and also create financial savings through improving our use of electricity, gas and water throughout the school.
What we have been up to...
Here is the Eco Council receiving their Bronze Wild Challenge Award. We worked together as a school to achieve it.
Christmas Jumper Swap Shop
The children asked for children and parents to donate Christmas jumpers to our ‘Christmas jumper swap shop’
Many children brought in jumpers and exchanged them for new ones of a bigger size.
Any left over were donated to charity so they could be recycled further.
WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY
This term we celebrated our first ‘World Environment Day’ by coming to school wearing an item of green. We learnt all about plastic pollution and what effect it is having on our environment. We did lots of fun activities and created some AMAZING artwork using recycled plastic.
With the money we raised we were able to help marine wildlife being affected by plastic pollution by adopting are very own sea creature.
This term the Eco-Team have registered to become part of the ‘Big Battery Hunt’. We are please asking parents to help us over the summer to collect as many used batteries as they can find and put it into the recycle box which will be sent out at the end of the end of term. The school who collects the most batteries will win a prize!
Some members of Year 3 have decided to join in the Great British Spring Clean this year… Armed with litter pickers and lots of enthusiasm, 3J made our way to Bedford Park, to pick up as much litter as we could from our local area. We were astonished at the amount of litter, even picking up several wrappers from the pavement, as we walked to the park. At Bedford Park, we spent time looking high and low for litter, and managed to fill several bin bags. We all had a lovely time doing something for the community and all agreed that we would always put out rubbish in a bin and recycle if we could. No litterbugs here!
Eco Silver Award
The Eco Team are pleased to announce that through all our hard work as a school this year we have achieved the Silver Eco-Schools award. Well done to the Eco Team and to all the staff and pupils throughout the school for your help and support.
Help Australia Day
The Eco Team are very passionate about helping the people and animals suffering in Australia during and in the aftermath of the Bush Fire Crisis.
On Friday 31st January they arranged a ‘bring a teddy’ to school day when all the children were invited to bring a teddy into school and make a £1 donation towards the charity they identified . This was the WWF – The Australian Appeal and The Koala Protection initiative.
