Miss Browne is our Eco-coordinator and is leading our Eco-Council.  We are in the process of gaining Eco-School status and will keep you updated with our progress.

Please check-out future Newsletters for how you can become involved too!

Whole School Involvement:

RSPB Bird Watch:

On Friday 27th January we took part in the RSPB's Garden Bird watch. 

Five enthusiastic volunteers from every class across the school spent some time over lunchtime with Miss Browne looking for different species of birds outside her classroom window. 

We saw such a variety in the one hour time slot, Including a Great Spotted Woodpecker!

Below you can find our results. Our greatest flock size was eight Great tits at once, closely followed by seven Wood pigeons:

Our Eco-Committee:

We had so many enthusiastic children put themselves forward to be part of our Eco-council - it is great to see how enthusiastic our school is about being 'greener' and helping the environment!

After a careful selection process our Eco-Committee members were selected.

We meet regularly to discuss ideas and our Action Plan towards gaining Eco-School status. 

Please let them know if you have any ideas as we would love to include everyone in our projects.

We will keep you updated of our progress.

The Eco-Schools Impact report is also a great resource for sharing how passionate and inspired children have been. Their projects really have made a difference!
