Our Eco Committee have recently achieved Green Flag status - they have worked exceptionally hard for this! The children take on roles and responsibilities throughout the school - Eco Warriors red carding where lights and other electrical items have been left on, litter pickers supporting our caretaking staff in ensuring that the environment is clean and tidy and the recycling team supporting with the collection of plastic bottles, food waste and paper.

 

So far this year the Eco Committee have:

  • provided recycling boxes for every classroom in the school

  • devised a new Eco Code 

  • taken part in Switch-Off Fortnight (which the Eco Committee delivered an assembly about)

  • conducted an environmental review of the school and advised staff and pupils on how we can save energy

  • purchased an Air Quality Monitor so that we can monitor carbon emissions

  • had a meeting with Bridie Finnan from Sefton Council to discuss how we can prevent carbon emissions

  • installed a diffusion tube at the front of the school

  • been awarded Green Flag status!

 

Our plans now are to: 

  • grow fruit and vegetables for the school kitchen 

  • carry out litter picking duties on the school yard and in the local community

  • build a green wall at the front of our school

  • create links with the community forest

 

 

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded our Green Flag :)

YHA Langdale

We had a fabulous time visiting YHA Langdale in the Lake District.

We took part in the following activities:

 

Environmental Art – Using Andy Goldsworthy as inspiration, the children explored shape and texture and the awe and wonder of the natural environment as they created their own pieces of natural ephemeral art.

 

Guided Nature Walk – This was a short, guided nature walk, taking in a range of different habitats and landscapes. Throughout the walk, the children were challenged to use their senses to discover the natural environment in different ways than they are used to. 

Green Wall

Our Airly Sensor has arrived!

We can now track the air quality outside of our school - how exciting!

Sunflowers

Our sunflowers are growing nicely - we're very excited to plant them outside when they're a bit bigger and to see who can grow the tallest one smiley
