We entered this years School's Wheelbarrow competition with the RHS Flower show and are pleased to announce that we came Third! (April 2015)
Can you help us?
We are looking for parent volunteers to help on our Eco-Committee. The committee would meet every half term for a short time to discuss our action plan and targets for this academic year. For more information please speak to Mrs Williams.
We have all been very busy throughout the year learning about how to look after our environment. Some of the most successful things we have done are:
Providing habitats for minibeasts- we have done this through developing a sensory garden to attract butterflies and bees in our nursery garden.
Reducing the amount of heat lose in the school- we found out ways of reducing heat lose in the nursery and decided we would fit new windows and put up a free flow door cover.
Developing awareness of Fairtrade- we took part in Fairtrade Fortnight where we bought, played and cooked with Fairtrade products.
Taking part in 'Little Schools Birdwatch'- we spent a whole week finding out all about the birds that visit our nursery garden. We tried lots of ways to attract more birds to the garden and kept a record of our findings.
Locally sourcing fruit and vegetables- we now visit the local food co-op every week to buy fruit and vegetables for our snack and cooking.
This year our targets are to reduce litter in and around our school grounds, to reduce the amount of water we use, to encourage more Walk to School days to encourage healthy living,to support parents to provide a healthy lunch box and to make pupils and parents aware of fairtrade produce by taking part in another succesful fairtrade fortnight.
