Eco Council 2018-2019
Plastic pollution assembly
Today Jess McHugh from Amey Construction Company came to visit our school.
Jess works for the Environment and Sustainability Department.
She talked to the children from KS2 about plastic and how it is damaging our planet.
After the assembly Jess met with the Eco Council to discuss how our school can use less plastic.
The Eco Council came up with some brilliant ideas which they will be sharing with the rest of the school after Christmas.

Litter Picking at the North Park
5K took part in a Litter Pick at the North Park.
They collected 12 bags of rubbish and even found 2 laptops!
Well done 5K , the park will be a nicer place for everyone to use now.
Today we were extremely lucky to have been visited by Ken Kneale from Baden energy and Caroline Clayton from Ele.
We enjoyed an assembly about solar energy and then we were given a solar computer!
Thank you to Baden Energy for the funding and Ele for providing the school with such a fantastic piece of equipment.
A huge “Well Done” must also go to our Eco Council who first contacted Baden Energy.
The RSPB visited our school and worked with Y2 and Y5.
We looked at the different habitats around school and thought about where we might need to provide more habitats for insects and animals.
Exciting news from ELe about the Eco Councils request for our school to use solar power to run some of our equipment.
Time Capsule 4.11.16
The Eco-Council were invited by the Canal River Trust to bury a time capsule.
We buried the time capsule by the mile marker at the back of our school.
Each class put something in for people in 100 years to discover.
Eco Council Meeting Spring Term 2016
The Eco Council met and discussed how we could save energy in our school.
They decided what we really need is a solar panel!
The Eco Council are writing letters to a local company to see if they can help us make this wish come true.

Autumn 1 Meeting
We discussed what we thought needed improving in our school to help the planet.
We decided we need to recycle more and that bike racks could enable children to ride to school.
We held a meeting with Mr Daniels to discuss our ideas. Mr Daniels asked us questions about cost and where the bins and racks would go.
He agreed to our proposals!
We now have paper recycling bins in every classroom and bike racks in KS1 and KS2.
