This week we have made posters to encourage everyone to recycle plastic bottle tops. Lush make environmentally friendly cosmetics. By collecting plastic bottle tops we can help Lush recycle the plastic which is environment friendly.
Some of us are going on a trip to the Royal Courts of Justice and then later on in the year all of us will be going on a trip to City Hall.
After the half term we will be organising an assembly about bees and why they are endangered. We will be doing a lot of research about bees to find out what we can do to help.
Watch this space for further information.
We have had a few meetings since our last update and we have had lots of ideas such as:
-Don’t use plastic water bottles
-Regular litter picks
-Find out if our books are recyclable
-Are compost bins in use
-Trying to encourage people to walk to school
-Encouraging people to turn off the lights and projectors and making posters
– Litter pick around ponds and lakes
-Bring in reusable packed lunch
-Stop bringing artificial fruit in and bring in real fruit
– Stop using/selling silly string at fairs
These ideas are only a few. We started with making posters to encourage everyone to save energy. We are taking part in science week next week. We are looking at recycling bins we have in school and also starting a campaign to recycle bottle tops.
The ECO Councillors are now in possession of shiny green badges which they are wearing with pride. The next meeting will be after Christmas when we will start work on our action plan.
Today we looked at the 10 topics for the ECO school award. We have decided to audit our school and the environment to find out how ECO friendly we really are. When we know more information we will be deciding on a plan of action to improve some of the areas. Watch here to find out what will happen next.
Today the ECO Council met for the first time. Introductions were made and ideas shared. All members were present including Ms Johnson and Mrs Rolfe. Everyone is eager to get saving the planet. Our next task will be to undertake an audit of our school to find out how we are doing at present. Then, watch this space for our child lead action plan.
