ECO Zone

We have written to the local MP Heather Wheeler, about climate change concerns. We hope to get a response...

During the year, we gathered any dried out pens to be recycled. Well done, by July we had over 200!

We have begun creating a small wildlife pond in the courtyard. We added some frogspawn and some rocks so that baby frogs will be able to climb out. We will add more to make a real pond as time goes on.

Thanks to the Representatives from each class on the Eco Team for the year 2020-2021. You each did some valuable work in your own class or year group area. Its a shame we couldn't meet as a team.

Battery recycling animation

We are taking part in the 'Big Battery Hunt' 2020. Save your old Batteries to stop them going to landfill and to get prizes for our school! We will collect them in when we return to school.

Well done to the children traveling to school on bikes or scooters! We want to try not to use cars so much if we possibly can.

We have done some learning about how important it is to reduce the amount of plastic we use. In our garden, the Eco team have made an arch from old milk containers as a reminder about plastic waste. We recommend you and your family watch 'War on plastic with Hugh and Anita' on the BBC iplayer.

We made our school a 'Hedgehog friendly' environment as we realised there were hedgehogs already here!

The Wildlife Garden Project - How to help hedgehogs in your garden The Wildlife Garden Project shows you how to help hedgehogs in your garden. Hedgehogs are in decline in the UK, but this video shows you a few simple things you can do to help our prickly friends. Always remember to provide hedgehogs with fresh water.

Our main area is the sensory garden. We are always working to keep it tidy, safe, inviting and ensure it is eco -friendly. These are some of the jobs we have done in there:


* Seating area for whole class outdoor learning

* Planting areas for vegetables and herbs

* Wild areas to encourage wildlife, more wild flower seeds sown

*Tunnels for hedgehogs to roam between different garden

* Hedgehog house

* Log piles for mini beasts

* New grass seed planted on a bare area

*Two compost bins (one close to the playground to be used for fruit)

* Some decorative stones positioned.

*** A new water butt is ready to go...we just need some help from a grown-up maintenance person!


We have achieved the Eco-Schools Silver award!
