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
Our Eco Team have had a successful year! Here is the Eco Council receiving their Bronze Wild Challenge Award.
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!
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.
RECYCLING – ECO ART CLUB
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!
