This year, a new group of children have been appointed by their peers to be a part of our school’s Eco-Committee. The Eco-Committee  will share a range of responsibilities including energy saving and recycling, and will continue to learn how they can look after their school and local environment. The Eco-Committee will work alongside Miss Smith to lead assemblies and Eco themed weeks throughout the year, for all the children and staff to take part in. We are hoping that the Eco-Committee can have a positive impact on our school and help us to achieve the ‘Eco Schools’ Award.

Waste week 6th-10th March 2017

Leading up to waste week this coming week, children have had an assembly on the theme of upcycling. Some of our eco-warriors presented posters on the importance of upcycling and some created their own upcycled projects.

Details of the assembly can be found below and the competition which children can enter to win the school £300 worth of amazon vouchers can be found here at jointhepod.org/home

As part of International Walk to school month we encourage as many parents and children to leave their cars at home and get fit by walking to school. See below for more information.

International Walk to School Month

 

Switch off fortnight November 2016

The school recently took part in switch off fortnight which was an incentive for teachers to remember to switch off lights and interactive whiteboards during lunchtimes to save energy and money. Our eco-warriors rewarded them with stickers on a chart underneath the light.

“The Earth is one of the rare spots in the cosmos where the mind has flowered.  Man is the product of three billion years of evolution, in whose person the evolutionaly process has at last become conscious of itself and its possibilities ~ whether he likes it or not, he is responsible for the whole further evolution of our planet”   Julian Huxley
