Our Eco committee, made up of Ella, Connie, Lennie and Emmie, have been meeting regularly with Miss Knights to discuss things they want to do, and changes we can make across the school to improve our eco status.
We've been looking at lot at our grounds, and have planted some seed bombs right down the end of the field, in amongst all the new trees. Hopefully these will take and we'll have some nice wild flowers and long grass down that end.
We've also made some bird feeders, filled with fat balls that are now hanging amongst the trees in the middle of the field. Whilst the pupils aren't using the field because it's too muddy, we thought this was a great time to utilise the bird feeders and encourage them to our space!
Some pupils have borrowed some of our litters pickers for weekends, to help clean up their local area. We have lots of equipment anyone can borrow, just ask!
Finally, we will be creating a wild garden space behind the new classroom. This space is used only by Birch class and is unfinished. We all thought some wild flowers to encourage bees and butterflies would work well there!
Please let us know if you have any ideas you would like to share with the Eco Council!
