Green Day 9.07.19

Green Day 9.07.19 1

Our most recent Green Day was Tuesday 9th July.

 

The theme was 'get sorted for summer' which involved having a big tidy up of the school and grounds. We did fun activities in school as usual and are asked children to wear green and donate 50p.

 

We also reminded everyone about our 'plastic free breaktime' initiative - please make sure you are continuing to support your child in this. 

 

Thank you.

 

Our Spring Green Day:

 

 

It was centered around the theme of 'waste' and involved wearing green and donating 50p towards some new compost caddies and a school wormery.

 

We discussed our aim to reduce our overall waste in school and launched the 'plastic free breaktime' campaign where we hope children will start bringing in snacks at breaktime without plastic packaging.

 

 

 

We also looked at local crisp packet recycling and how to reduce the waste of milk at home (millions of gallons are wasted each year).
