Here is a reminder of our school campaign for 'Plastic Free Breaktimes'.

We continue to want to make sure that our pupils have a snack at breaktime that follows this as much as possible because every little really helps to make a difference and reduce plastic waste.

 

 

An Eco Art Green Day we had was a great success and children enjoyed making Christmas decorations out of plastic bottle tops and lids thatcouldn't be recycled.

Each class worked to decorate a tree using the hand-crafted decorations, and these decorated trees were placed around the school for all to see. There was some debate about using glitter on our decorations, as most glitter products are made from plastic, which contributes to the growing problem of microplastics in the environment, however, we made the decision to use supplies of glitter we already had in school, but not to purchase any more of the type we have historically purchased (the type probably every primary school in the UK has purchased for years gone by!); we just wanted you to know that as it is important to us.

The school looked very Christmassy thanks to the effort put in by every class. It was a BIG Thank you to everyone!

Green Day 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. 

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).
