Our Eco Council co-ordinator is Mrs Parker. She meets up with the eco councillors every Friday afternoon and does gardening and outdoor learning activities with various classes on Thursday and Friday afternoons. Every child in the school has the opportunity to do gardening and outdoor learning activities at some point each year as Mrs Parker works with a different class every half term. In addition to this, the children can select gardening activities for Fridays' golden time. The children grow, cook and eat their own produce and throughout the year they do gardening activities and experiments and learn to look after their outdoor environment.
This year the children on our eco team are Olivia and Beth (Y6), Rakshika and Tom (Y5), Harry and Gia (Y4), Nils and Arianna (Y3), Sonia and Mateusz (Y2), Mya and Jacob (Y1), Havana and Brooke (R)
Our eco council is now in its fourth year and last year we were awarded the green flag by Eco schools for our environmental work. The main Eco topics are; litter, waste, energy, biodiversity, school grounds, transport, global citizenship and healthy living.l
Please take a look at our noticeboard outside year 2 to see displays of our eco projects.
This week, pupils are being rewarded for their recycling! After a fabulous assembly by the Eco-Council, it has been agreed that all Golden Tickets this week will be given to pupils who are doing the right thing with their lunch packaging, and also how they use their recycling bins in the classroom.
Have a look at the photos below, and also the wonderful presentation created by the Eco Council.
