The Eco Team
Last week we learnt about recycling rubbish, Mr Chapman came in and told us how rubbish is recycled and where it goes. In Arts morning we made birdfeeders, planters, pencil pots, musical instruments and wind chimes from things we throw away. Year 3 / 4 had a talk from Mrs Stevens on how to make good compost. After the talk they got a spoon to look for creepy crawlies that help to rot our waste into compost.

The Eco Team
The ECO team are voted in from children in every class. This group ensures our ECO code is followed throughout the school and we continue to look after the environment. The group regularly contribute in Worship times outlining the importance of recycling and re using in school. They encourage waste free lunches and guide younger children during "Turn OFF" the power weeks. The ECO code they created reminds us all to look after our homes, our school and our world.
Caring is good
Act fast to save the world
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
This year we are focusing on Water. As part of this, we invited Severn Trent to come in and discuss how we can save water and what should and shouldn't go down the toilet.
As part of Eco, we have a team of 'Rotters'. The Rotters collect fruit waste, shredded paper and used toilet tubes from around the school and then put them in the compost bin. Once the compost is ready, we put it in our school garden.
Other jobs we do around the school are:
Make sure paper is recycled
Fill up bird feeders to keep attracting wildlife to our school
Ensuring lights and boards are turned off when they are not being used
Making decisions based on areas like would a hand drier be more Eco friendly than paper towels
And lots more.
