Our new and improved ECO Code

The new 2023-24 ECO councilors decided to improve our previous ECO code by updating it with new phrases linked to all of our ECO targets this year. They created a draft ECO code and then spent time in their classes collecting their peers feedback. They took the feedback on board and have created a whole school ECO code! Well done to the whole school for collaborating on our new ECO code!

Litter picking!

Each month this year every class from P3-P7 will complete a litter pick on the school grounds. They will then create a class bar chart and compare how much they have found and discuss ways we can reduce the amount of litter on our school grounds. Below is P4M's first litter pick of the year and their results.

Hedgerow Heroes Competition

The following images below show our entries to the Hedgerow Heroes competition. 6 KS2 children worked together to produce a fieldsketch of our school environment which showcases the wildlife and plants on the school grounds and how we as a school look after them. A selection of the children then wrote short stories to depict how our school grounds is a safe haven for animals and how hedgerow would benefit our wildlife. The pieces of writing and art are outstanding and we are extrmely proud of our entries. Fingers crossed we hear good news very soon.
