Our Eco Committee is brand new for 2017-2018 but already we have done so much together. We have already achieved the Bronze award and are well on the way to Silver.
Our latest meeting was on Thursday 1st February - below is a summary of our current activities.
So far we have completed our School Environment survey and identified our actions from there (see link).
In November we took part in Switch off Fortnight this was a big success and we have since set up enrgy montiors in every classroom to encourage more energy saving.
The Eco Committee lead an assembly on the Dangers of Plastics and used it to encourage children to recycle more. We will add a copy of the Power Point soon. If you'd like to look at how else you can help the following link is very interesting with lots of ideas.
Over the next term we have plans for:
A Nest Box Design Competition:
For National Nest Box week we will be running a competition to design either a 2D or 3D next box by the children. Winning entries will win prizes once selected and any 3D designs will go up in our outside area to encourage our local bird population. More information to follow soon.
Fair Trade Fortnight - 26/2 - 11/3
We will be learning about Fair Trade over these two weeks and running a collection for Fairtrade consummables to add to a hamper we will then raffle off to raise money for a Fairtrade charity (tbc). More information to follow soon.
Book Swap Day
On World Book Day, March 1st, we will be collecting preloved books from the children to form a Book Swap sale as part of our drive to Reuse and Recycle more in school. If you have a book you know someone else may love, please donate it to the sale and all children will be able to purchase a second hand book for 50p a book (some may be bundled). Parents are welcome too and all proceeds will go towards buying a new water butt to help us save water in the garden.
More information to follow soon.
