Our Eco-school committee is made up of 8 children in Key Stage Two. We meet several times a half term to discuss different issues we are working on to improve our environment and to work on our action plan.
We have several adults who help us with our Eco-school committee. We have:
Mrs Beddow- Year 4 teacher and eco-school co-ordinator
Mrs Holmes- Teaching Assistant
Mrs Kelly- Deputy head
Our Eco Code:
Everyone needs to work together to save world!
No rubbish should be left on the floor,
Value our wildlife,
If nobody is in a room, turn the light off!
Recycle glass, plastic, cardboard and paper,
Orange peel and food waste can be composted,
Never leave litter lying around,
Make sure you keep our environment clean,
Effort is needed to be eco-friendly,
Never leave taps on,
Thank you for helping us Save the World!
The children are in change of ensuring everyone is being eco-friendly and they take their job very seriously!
In the Autumn term we had been focusing on Energy and we looked at different ways we could reduce energy waste. The Eco-council were very brave and presented an assembly to introduce 'Switch off fortnight'. During Switch Off Fortnight we have been completing activities to help us think carefully about different ways to reduce our energy consumption. In Year 4, we have written letters to different members of the staff encouraging them to switch off electrical items when they are not in use.
Don't forget to send your used ink cartridges into school so we can recycle them and help raise money to help fund our school garden!
