Gardening and Eco Club

In September 2019 a new club was formed, Gardening and Eco Club run by Mrs Bamford on a Monday night after school. The club was very busy in the Autumn term preparing a rather overgrown piece of land ready for planting. The club also took over a waste piece of land and after a lot of weeding, raking and digging over we scattered grass seed and waited.
In January Gardening Club started again, we had to start by collecting all of the leaves. We worked together to rake and collect the leaves, we used some of them in Forest School and some we have added to our compost bins.

The Eco Committee has also been busy. Each class has an Eco Committee representative who attends Eco Club meetings. The Eco Committee are working hard to achieve an Eco Committee award. The first thing they did was to complete an audit to see what we are doing really well at and what we need to improve.

One of the areas the Eco Committee considered was how we can use less electricity. We went around the school once all the children had gone home to see how many lights and computers had been left on. We were all surprised at the number of lights that were on even though nobody was in the room. The Eco Committee set about making posters to remind staff and children to turn off the lights when leaving a room.

The Eco Committee are now looking at the amount of single use plastic we use in school and have arranged to speak to the kitchen staff to see how we can limit the amount of single use plastic.
