Our fantastic eco team have been busy over the last few weeks thinking about environmental and community projects that will improve our school and local area. They have been working closely with Groundwork North East and the #iwill campaign. The children wanted to be involved in a big school litter clean up and have started clearing up our school grounds to ensure it is litter free! They are going to be continuing their good work by becoming involved in a litter pick around the local area and designing posters to encourage our local community to put litter in the bin. Other projects are to plant a herb garden, plant fruits and vegetables in our school allotments make homes for local wildlife and create a playground for our school chickens!
In February, the eco warriors also took part in the RSPB Big school bird watch. We found out that lots of starlings and blackbirds like to live within our school grounds. The children are now thinking of different ways to attract different species of birds into our school wildlife areas.
