We have been blessed with an amazing Eco-committee this year and they have embraced and enjoyed making our world a better, greener place! They were very enthusiastic to share their ideas about what we have accomplished...
"We loved working together and talking to
children from the other year groups.
We love helping the environment and persevering to
show how important it is to save the planet".
We were very excited to support Norton Church in their Eco-Church project. The children decorated bird boxes and created mini-beast homes from recycled materials. They designed lots of ways in which we could attract wildlife to the church grounds and wrote a letter to Reverend Valentine. She was delighted with our amazing ideas.
In June, we enjoyed a Share Day with parents and children. In the 'Eco Extravaganza', we enjoyed different activities based on some key Eco-Schools areas.
We discussed why it is important to eat fruit and the benefits it can have on our body. We made fruit kebabs with oranges, melons, bananas and more!
We explored the school grounds searching for different aspects of nature. The reflective garden and the gazebo were great spots for exploration!
Now that the building work is complete, we have been able to start Gardening sessions. Each Friday, one class enjoys helping out to develop the school grounds.
