Eco Schools 2014 - 2015
Switch Off Week 9th – 12th March
The week started with a whole school assembly explaining the aims of switch off week, which were to try to use less electricity saving the school money and putting less CO2 into the atmosphere.
The Eco School team went around school putting coloured stickers on all electrical switches. If it has a green sticker anyone can turn it off, if it has a yellow sticker you have to ask an adult, if it has a red sticker it can’t be turned off.
Pupils across the school learnt about how electricity is made (both by burning fossil fuels and with renewable sources such as solar) and why it is important for the planet to try and burn fewer fossil fuels. We also looked at how much electricity the school uses each month and the Eco team discussed ways we could try and reduce this further.
Building a Bug Hotel 10th July 2015
This was a very exciting project which the whole school took part in.
Each class brought in different materials to use and the pallets were recycled from the church build.
The hotel was built over the course of the day with each class adding a new layer.
The bug hotel is situated in our wild life teaching area.
