The school have been members of Green Schools Revolution for two years and their amazing efforts won them Regional Winner for our North region this year!
The young eco champions at the school are getting busy with gardening and studying habitats.
Lottie, 10, says:
“I have been a member of the gardening club for ages, but since we started growing fruit and vegetables and using them to fundraise we have much better equipment and more plants to grow. The school looks really pretty now.”
And Jamie, 7, likes her bugs! She said:
“In the Eco Club we used the Green School Revolution ‘Minibeast Motel’ guide you sent us and we got some wooden pallets and straw and tiles and sticks and leaves and made our very own bug hotel, the bugs now have a nice warm home and somewhere to live. We have also built them a park out of rocks and spend time watching them.”
Samantha Lowey, Eco Co-ordinator at the school, writes about their Green Schools Revolution:
“We have created a dedicated Eco Team who meet once every half term to discuss ideas and projects, using suggestions from the other pupils and staff members.
Projects so far have included:
Using the seeds to attract bees sent to us in the Green Schools Revolution Week pack, the started children on a whole new line of thinking.
Having done some research into why we would want to attract bees, they have become fascinated with them and what they do for the world around us. We have made great use of the posters sent in displays relating to this and have done a whole topic on habitats.”
