Hello! We are the Eco-Council. We meet once a half term to review ideas and plan for future actions for ways to make our school 'greener' and more sustainable. Look out for us weighing your black bins because the class with the least waste over a half term will have an extra playtime! We give out stickers to people we see using the correct bins on the playground.
Thank you to everyone who walked to school or joined in the Park and Stride for Healthy Schools Week and National Clean Air Day. Well done to everyone who entered the 'upcycled' objects competition. We had some very creative uses of yoghurt pots, plastic bottles, boxes and scrap material. Well done to Y6 and Y1 who generated the least waste in their class bins and enjoyed their extra playtime. Thank you to Leeds CC Waste Advisers who came into assembly and Y3 to help us remember how best to recycle and reuse our waste at home. We made some useful wallets from old juice cartons!
Green Day was a success with our fantastic junk materials creations down the catwalk in our fashion show. There were very imaginative ways to reuse plastic bags, magazines, cereal boxes and empty pop bottles! Well done to Remi in Year 1 and Evie in Year 5 who were the overall winners.
