The Eco Team have been working very hard since coming back in September.

We have been thinking about the affect Litter has on the world and how it can hurt wildlife and destroy our environment. We have been designing posters for school and have been on a 'litter-pick' in our local community, to keep the area clean and to raise awareness within school. The Eco Team were keen to notify one of our own Governors, who previously worked within the council, to inform her of the litter and lack of working dustbins locally.

 

The team are now thinking about their next topic 'Transport'.

 

..... watch this space!!

 

Congratulations to Monkhouse Eco Warriors, who regained the Green Flag once again! It was another two years of hard work, but the children loved every minute! The warriors covered 9 topics, determined by Eco Schools. Some of these topics included Litter, Energy, Waste, Biodiversity and Global Citizenships. The children presented everything they covered to the Eco assessor and they were so proud and enthusiastic, showing him our school displays, school grounds and discussing the whole school projects they organised.
 
Some of the super 'green' projects covered were;
 
Waste week - children looked at how much food was wasted at school and at home and kept a waste diary. They held a waste quiz and up-cycling competition.
 
WaterAid Day - kicked off by a super assembly from a WaterAid Representative who gave us tips on saving water and showing us an African family and the difficulties of finding water. We held 'WaterAid Pupil Pipeline Day' and children worked through an obstacle course to pass water from one end of the class to the other, without spilling any. They raised £275 for water aid and a lot of awareness throughout.
 
Sals-Shoes collection (Global Citizenship) - Children collected over 100 pairs of shoes and organised delivery to Sals Shoes. It helped children in U.K. and Africa to provide shoes and help them attend school.
 
As you can see, the Eco Warriors are very busy bees
