Green School

It all started with a couple of strawberries, tomatoes, beans and a cabbages in 2015. We started a small garden on part of the school field and developed our pond and wildlife area. Then we planted some seeds and crossed our fingers. Over the years the garden has increased in size and children have been given more opportunities to learn about their environment. Now the school has a successful Eco-team, adventurous Forest School and dedicated gardening clubs in KS1 and KS2. More children and classes have started to grow their own fruit and vegetables with the aim of learning how to grow food for us to eat.   

Eco-Club

This year we have been awarded our 3rd Green Flag from Eco-schools! 

It has taken over a year of preparation and hard work by both this year's Eco-team and last year's Eco-team. The Eco-team is made up of children from every class in the school. We meet on Tuesday afternoons to organise projects and whole school campaigns. Eco-monitors check the classes are recycling and trying to switch off lights to reduce the energy waste. They interview people like Mrs Hepworth and Mr Fowler about how the school can get better at reducing waste and saving energy.

  Reception and KS2 will be taking part on a Nationwide science expert to measure the mini-beasts in the soil under their feet and how this affects the local bird population.

EYFS & KS1 Gardening Club- Mrs Appleby runs a club for children in Year Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 . They have their own bed in the school garden and are responsible to planting, growing and weeding their patch. 

 

KS2 Gardening Club - Mr Prosser runs garden activities on a Friday lunchtime. Children can choose to join in planting vegetables, maintaining the pond and looking after our school environment. 

 

Forest Schools -  Mrs Appleby runs Forest School activities for children in EYFS. Small groups are taken out to carry specially planned activities to learn about their environment and learn social skills. 

 Congratulations to the Eco-team who have been awarded £2000 from the Tesco Bags of Help project. The money will go towards setting up a garden for families to share with the school so more people can have the opportunity to grow their own food and learn new things. 

 

 

 

  The school took part in the One Tree Per Child Project in Bristol. Each child was given opportunity to get a free apple or pear tree. The project also donated some hazel trees and fruit trees to the school and they were planted by the Eco-team. Hopefully in the next couple of years we will get some juicy apples from these trees! 

 

Building a Bug Hotel

 

We have built a hotel for our local bugs on the school field. We had children and parents help build the hotel using pallets. We built small bug hotels using old drinks bottles. The volunteers also helped us to dig out some new plant beds for us to plant some seeds in. Thank you to everyone who helped. 

 

   

 

We have been busy around school. We have been planting bulbs around the school grounds, we just have to wait till Spring to see how it turns out. Year 2 have created their own wormery to find a way of using the waste from their morning fruit. Here are some of the pictures of how they made it.
