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 Eco-Council Ambassadors for each class and they will be meeting regularly 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.
Our Eco – Council Ambassadors
We had a special assembly to introduce our Eco-Council Ambassadors to the rest of the school. Here are our KS 1 children receiving their certificates and badges. They are all keen and ready to get started!
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!
As stated in our action plan we have begun to create our wildlife area. We have been clearing the secret garden to create a better planting area and Mr Newton has been working hard putting us some new raised beds in. We decided to recycle the old log roll and leaves to create a bug hotel. We had great fun doing this!
