Welcome to our Eco page
We have a very active school Eco Council which is made up of elected members from each class from Y2-Y6. The Council meet weekly to discuss how we can help the planet by becoming more eco friendly in everything we do. This could include raising awareness of the importance of recycling, saving water, saving electricity by only turning lights on when we need them or it could be organising litter collections.
Walk on Wednesday and Funky Feet Friday
Each week we try to encourage as many children to walk to school or park and stride!
Our Walk on Wednesday's and Funky Feet Friday's are very successful with class winners being able to come to school in their own 'wonderful, funky shoes' as a reward!
Well done to Y1/2 AA and Y6JS who are our Walk on Wednesday and Funky Feet Friday winners for this half term!
Operation Christmas Child
Last year your generosity helped Operation Christmas Child to send 900,008 children, in 107 countries, a gift filled shoebox from the UK.
We are once again asking you to get involved in this year’s campaign. If you feel you are able to fill a shoebox please refer to the leaflet your child has brought home. Filled gift shoeboxes need to be returned to school before Thursday 17th November. You can find further details on www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk where you can find out how to track your gift.
Spare leaflets are available from the dispenser outside the school office.
Our new school allotment on Rainford Road is now almost complete and ready to be planted up. We have been working closely with members of the Community Allotment Team and the John Eddleston Trust to establish the site so that our children can visit and grow vegetables and fruit throughout the year. We will be taking childen down there regularly to sow seeds, weed, learn about propogation; germination; seed dispersal and explore a whole host of of other scientific and environmental phenomena.
The Eco Council visited our allotment to have a look at the raised beds and meet our fellow allotmenteers.
Children from the Eco Council had great fun
making apple sponge cake in the school kitchen with
Miss Hannah, using apples that they had harvested
from the school orchard. The cake was served as
part of school lunch and was absolutely delicious!
