The Eco Committee members met and formed their action plan for the year. Please click on the link below to see what we hope to achieve this academic year.
Keep checking back for updates on how we are getting on!
We are well on our way with completing our work in the pond area. The Eco Committee would like to thank Mr Sykes for installing a new dipping platform. We are planning to go out to dig some more of the pathway in the next few weeks.
We have officially launched our new energy saving competition to help support 'Switch Off Fortnight'. All children have been invited to take part. The competition involves comparing your energy usage over two weeks. There great prizes to be won! Below is copy of the survey needed to take part.
The Eco Committee would like to thank the Scouts for starting the digging process in our pond area for the new pathway. They did a great job! We have also spent an hour there digging out a little more and our caretaker has been a few times to help out. Below are some photos of the Eco Committee in action. Well done to all involved!
Traffic and Travel
One of the things we do is award the Golden Lock. On a Monday we put a ‘golden lock’ on a child’s bike or scooter and if they find the lock on their bike or scooter they will be rewarded with a little prize and they can also keep the ‘travel teddy’ until the end of the week. We do this to encourage children to scoot and bike and be more active.
Jack Archer – Walk to School Week
We won the Jack Archer Award 2017!
If you were wondering what the Jack Archer is? It’s an award for the school where the most children walk to school over a week. The fact we won proves we are a very active, health school!
Lollipop Lady – Safe Crossing
We have a lollipop lady, Mrs Haynes. She has the job of making it safe for children to cross the road at the safe crossing near the school gates. She is doing an amazing job. This means children can get to school on foot or scooter or bike as they can cross the road safely
No Car Day
Once every month we have a NO CAR DAY. We try to encourage our school to bring no cars or to use ‘Park and Stride’ if they live a bit too far away to walk, bike or scoot to school. This encourages children to be healthy and fit. It stops pollution and damage to our planet and it makes the area around school much safer.
To encourage children to bike or scoot to school every year we hold an exciting BIKE IT BREAKFAST. We provide healthy food for breakfast including fruit and yogurt for children and their families on that morning. It gives us energy for the day ahead and is a sociable event at school. We give out raffle tickets to children and parents! who scoot or bike and there are lots of prizes to be won.
