We have had a very successful year in the Eco-Warriors club and have gained the bronze award from the eco-schools national accreditation.
In the Autumn term, we focused firstly on harvesting our own vegetables for the Harvest Assembly. We had a record breaking pumpkin and purple carrots!
We chose the areas of Energy, Bio Diversity and School Grounds to focus on for this year. We met every week throughout the year with over 40 different children from across KS2 coming during different terms.
|We then moved on to the topic of Energy and the children created power points that were shared with the class about how to save energy around school. They followed this up by monitoring their own classrooms and reminding students and staff to conserve energy where it is being wasted. In the spring and summer term we created new raised beds and the children worked in teams to choose and grow flowers and vegetables. This year we chose to grow edible flowers, raspberries kindly donated by Mrs Wilkes, potatoes, rainbow chard and courgettes to name but a few.|
|We also collected donations of empty pop bottles to start making a new recycled frame for our wind battered greenhouse. The children loved the engineering side of designing how we could build it. We are not quite there with this project yet but we felt the children had completed enough of our action plan to award them the Bronze award. We presented the certificate in assembly to some very proud Eco-Warriors.|
