Recycling with a difference!

We welcomed Sue Drage into our school this morning for an extremely inspirational and informative talk on recycling and upcycling. Sue brought a variety of objects into school to show us that she had made from rubbish! It was amazing to see what could be achieved from such simple materials. The children and parents then created their own Christmas decorations from toilet rolls which will be displayed in the hall for our Christmas fair.

Many thanks to Sue and her husband and for the enthusiasm from children, parents and staff. We can’t wait to see how the decorations look in the hall.

Here are a few pictures from the day and show the work in progress:


Recycling with a difference- We are excited to have a visitor in school next Friday. Please save your toilet rolls and start bringing them in at the beginning of next week so that we can see how many we have.

We have now completed our Environmental Review of the school and will use this to formulate an action plan.

October 2017- We have recently formed our new Eco-council for this academic year!  We have met twice already and are very excited about future events and how we can continue the good work that the school has already begun.

Our first step is to further develop our Eco-council.  We have student representatives from each class in KS1 and KS2 who were voted for by their fellow pupils.

Willow: Freya and Anthony

Sycamore: Alex and Trinity

Maple: Isaac and Dominika

Oak: Ruby and Sefton.

We would like to further develop our eco-council by involving members of the community.  If you feel you have something to offer us- time or expertise- please speak to Mrs Dobson or leave your details at the office.
