Eco Warriors

Welcome to our Eco Page

Our Eco Warriors are celebrating the successful renewal of our Green flag! We are very happy and proud of our achievement - our third green flag!!

 

To gain the Green Flag Award our school had to be seen to be addressing the following nine elements:

 

  • Energy
  • Litter
  • School grounds
  • Waste minimisation
  • Global perspectives
  • Biodiversity
  • Water
  • Healthy living
  • Transport

 

We have an Eco Warrior team which comprises of two representatives elected from each class in Years 2 – 6. The team meets every half term to discuss current issues around the 9 elements and how they may be addressed in school.

 

Every new project undertaken at school takes environmental consequences into consideration as we try to minimize the impact on our environment.

 The gardening club has started again! So much has been planted - cabbages, radishes, beans, garlic and so much more.

Thank you to the Eco Warriors and  grandparents who helped and to the amazing volunteers from BT who traveled a long way to help us.

Look at the garden - so many people visited  and commented on the garden during the Summer Fayre.

Amberley Grand Spring Clean Up 2015

 

On Friday, we cleaned up our school grounds.

​ In the morning, we had a massive litter pick of the school field, cleaned the school yards and washed all the outdoor toys. 

 

                                                  

                                                 Waldo the dog and his environmental wardens came to help.

 

 

                                          

   

                  

 

                                         

 

                

 

In the afternoon, the Eco Warriors, children, parents and grandparents tackled the garden.

                                             

 

                  

  

                                                                      

                                                                                      Now we are ready to plant.

 

                                                                                  We are ready for the summer!
