The Eco-School Green Flag
We are a green flag school and enjoy being part of Eco-Schools. We take part in many of the campaigns set up through the Pod along with other projects. On The Pod’s website there are some games that you can play to help you to learn about saving your environment:
Each year the children elect 2 Eco-school captains from each class. We meet during assembly time and discuss the things that we feel need to be changed. The Eco-school captains carry out an environmental review of the school. They also elect a chair and deputy to take on leadership tasks.
Waste – Eco-school captains weighed food in the dining room to see how much waste we produced. They encouraged the children in their class to reduce this waste
Through Terracycle we are now going to recycle our whiteboard pens. The Eco-school captains made boxes for their classrooms and year groups. There were some fantastic boxes. Keep recycling!
Wear It Wild Day
On Wear it Wild Day, we had a wild day dressing up and having our faces painted. The Eco-School Captains did an assembly to help us learn about what is happening to the animals on our planet with change in climate and loss of habitat.
