Eco Team

Our new Eco Warriors have been thinking of some great ideas for the future school year. They have lots of Energy saving events up their sleeves and great ways to help the school and community. Not only do we have our regular Eco Warriors, but we run an Eco club each Monday, where we can keep on top of some Eco jobs around the school. We weed the garden, paint outdoor furniture and create posters for future events. Busy Bees!!
 
Our Eco Warriors were fantastic throughout his the last school year and their hard work was rewarded by regaining the Green Flag status. I'm sure our new Eco Team will work equally as hard and give us some amazing new ideas to focus on over the following school year. Watch this space for our up and coming projects.....
In March 2016 the Eco warriors met with Mr Robin Minney and spent the morning talking him through all the eco activities the school has engaged in over the last year. He was very impressed with the enthusiasm and ability of our children and as a result we were re- awarded Eco School status for the second time. Well done everyone. 

The Eco Warriors couldn’t believe the amazing, imaginative and inventive birdfeeders you brought into school. The response to the competition was phenomenal! It made it very difficult for the Eco Warriors to vote for the best from each class across school. But, after a lot of thinking they decided on …

We would like to hang many of the birdfeeders around our school grounds, but if you would like to take your feeder home, then it would be great to see some photos of some of the birds that might feed from your very own handy work!

The Eco Team are looking at waste and recycling this term and we wanted to remind our parents of the importance of putting the correct items in each waste bin at home. This is what happens to our good recycling practice...

Thank you all for raising £35 for the RSPB. Not bad for eating bird shaped biscuits! We hope you enjoyed eating them.  
Year 5 & 6 children and parents took part in our Monkhouse Big Dig, to help plant our new orchard on our school field. Thank you to everyone for your help. We cant wait to see our orchard grow and enjoy the fruit!
