Eco club has just re-started. We achieved our bronze and silver award. We chose to start by focusing on the following three areas: biodiversity, school grounds and water. We developed our existing school garden by planting some lavender to attract the bees as well as planting some onions and beans to enjoy at a later date. We have also taken part in regular litter picks to ensure our school grounds are kept litter free, made bird kebabs and bird feeders from recycled materials and carried out an investigation into whether or not the conkers we collected from our conker tree would make a good laundry detergent.
Welsh Water have visited our school to lead an assembly on ways to save water and to run some workshops with some of the KS2 classes.
We have also joined the Herefordshire Schools Recycling project and use coloured bins so that we can collect our chosen materials. We even had a visit from William the Bull to help add to his collection of bottle tops!
Please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas you think could be useful or if you would like more information about any of the activities we have completed.
