Our Eco counsellors planned a whole school Eco day. This links in with our Global Learning theme of Environment and Sustainability. The Eco counsellors informed the school in a whole school assembly about what they have achieved so far in their weekly meetings.  Each year group had a different Eco Schools themeEvery class had a discussion about what it means to be eco friendly and thought about what they could do to improve. Each class made a recycling robot to display in their class to help them think about their eco friendly actions. 

Our Eco Counsellors have been busy with planning the school’s Eco Day, reviewing plastic waste at lunchtime and working in the school’s eco garden area.

Year 4 are working towards the Ocean Friendly Award set by the Marine Conservation Society. They completed a beach clean and have considered the impact that the rubbish collected has on our marine animals

Some children in Year 5 have been doing a mini project on litter this term linked with Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Schools mission. They have been out litter picking each week, keeping the school grounds tidy. They did a litter pick on the beach and have been learning about the effects litter has on humans and animals in our environment. They have written letters to their local MP about the amount of rubbish in the area, thought about solutions to the problem, and are now thinking about how to challenge some of the industries about their use of single use plastics. They have also interviewed our Eco Schools Coordinator on how we can commit to removing at least 3 single use plastic items from our classrooms. Well done Year 5 you have been great!

We like to keep our outside area tidy and plant our own vegetables.

In Year 1 we have been learning about plants and making out own planters by reusing plastic bottles.
